    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


    The development of a concept vehicle from a blank slate to a prototype functional car involves a large number of multidiscipline collaborative professionals. In particular the transition of the conceptual design to a fully working prototype is typically affected by untimely delays due to the complex communication avenues existing between car design and engineering teams. The paper investigates a novel method which aims to engage the involved teams in a constructive exchange of information and ideas which could potentially result in a faster completion of the concept to prototype stage.
