Battery systems of electric vehicles suffer from low energy densities as well as high masses and geometrical complexity. The absence of standards for battery cells and peripheral components in combination with large and distributed design spaces within passenger vehicles open up innumerable possibilities to design battery systems. The results are product specific and uneconomical assembly systems. This paper describes the work of the TU Braunschweig to create a methodology that generates and evaluates modular and easy to assemble battery systems based upon user requirements. This methodology gathers and links requirements between the priorities "lightweight design" and "high volume production" including a partly automated generation of CAD data. The generated concepts are directly used for assembly planning. The presented methodology therefore represents a simultaneous engineering approach that shortens development time and supports design engineers as well as process planners.
