Decreasing the development time is a significant mean for a company operating in the technical area to lower the development cost. Effort invested into developing a given product can be used to derive following variants of the same product by applying a scaling method. Common scaling methods are created in a means of a geometrical scaling without the option of a flexible change of geometry, while maintaining the concept in the main. Therefore a method is proposed for deriving a knowledge based engineering system which ensures the beforehand mentioned characteristics of the scaling process.
