The question how to combine conceptual changes with optimization strategies and life cycle information to implement semi-automatical design changes regarding real environmental conditions in product development is still a challenge. The presented approach of an evolution-based development outlines a framework to get one step closer to computer-aided design variation. Instancing the bicycle important aspects like product representation, optimization strategies as well as the invariance of feedback variables are focused in detail.

Keywords: Technical Evolution, Optimization, Engineering Design.
