Within the “Collaborative Research Centre” 1153 a new technology called Tailored Forming (TF) is developed. With TF load adapted hybrid high performance components which consist of two different materials can be manufactured. The subproject “Configuration and design” aims to design optimized TF components to derive design guidelines. Therefore, a computer aided optimization environment is developed. To reduce the optimization time a method to determine the feasibility to develop and manufacture components by means of the TF technology is required. To determine the potential of the TF Technology the new method TRIZ Reverse, which is based upon the “Theory of Inventive Problem Solving” (TRIZ) has been created. TRIZ Reverse uses the traditional process of contradiction solving in reverse. At first it has to be analysed for which of the 40 Inventive Principles TF provides a solution. Subsequently, the contradiction matrix is reduced according to the identified principles for TF and important parameters for the optimization can be determined. This paper describes the scheme of an optimization process for the development of TF components and demonstrates the TRIZ Reverse method.
