The fourth industrial revolution is associated with changing production and design principles of machine parts. The purpose of this study is the development, elaboration and practical testing of an approach firstly proposed within the scope of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 653 "Gentelligent Components in Their Lifecycle". This approach is based on the adapted principles of evolution in nature: efficient development of the next generation of smart products based on the analysis of the life cycle data of the previous generations of the product and relevant information about their operation conditions. An analysis of contemporary trends in the technological community is provided and a brief overview given about existing approaches in optimization theory and technology using adapted mechanisms of nature. Basic determinations of the developed paradigm of Technical Inheritance are discussed. Using the example of within the scope of the CRC developed materials and methods the vision of applying the paradigm of technical inheritance is evaluated for the development and exploitation of smart components.

Keywords: New Product Development, Information Management, Design Methodology, Product Lifecycle Management
