In a nutshell

Carsten Sauerbier Diplomingenieur Maschinenbau Ideation Workshop


Workshop to conceive ideas
Online or on site
For Business Development, Product Development, Technology Development


The focus and techniques of the ideation workshop as an idea generation process differ depending on the objective with which it is carried out:

(please click on the + sign)

  • 5P-Method: Price, Place, Promotion, Product, People
  • Process optimisation:
    • Exploring needs
    • Generate ideas
    • Evaluate solutions
    • Make a plan
  • Feasibility
  • Prototype
  • Initiate
  • Implement
  • Design
  • Maintain
  • Reliability
  • Design for 6σ
  • Robustness
  • Technical details

With all methods, the task is initially narrowed down until one question remains. In order to find answers to this question, ideas are first collected together in the team, these are then evaluated, the best selected and implemented in a targeted manner.

I will accompany you and your team in the preparation and follow-up work and run the Ideation workshop with you.

Target groups:

  • Mechanical engineering companies
  • SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises)
  • engineering offices

Living Concept,
future-oriented & well-founded

In a nutshell

Carsten Sauerbier Diplomingenieur Maschinenbau Steps from sketch to part

Concept development

Hand sketches, calculations,
CAD models, animations
Feasibility and cost analysis

To concept development

usually belongs

Goals & tasks
Sketches & possible solutions
Standards & directives
Feasibility & Cost

Based on your task, I work out various proposed solutions that correspond to both your objectives and the applicable standards or guidelines. I will carry out the necessary calculations for you, create sketches by hand or CAD, and make an initial cost estimate for the product or production.

Target groups:

  • Mechanical engineering companies
  • SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises)
  • engineering offices

Ideas are hidden images in your head: Visualisation

In a nutshell

Carsten Sauerbier Diplomingenieur Maschinenbau 3D CAD models and technical drawings


3D CAD models from
Individual parts or assemblies
Technical drawings

I work out the visualisation

of a product for you with a wide variety of tools for various display and application options.

Autodesk Inventor
Single Parts
Single part drawings
Assembly drawings
Exploded views
Collision analysis
FEA analysis – mechanical stresses and deformations

I create 3D models for you to manufacture individual parts or assemblies. With the help of the CAD software Inventor from Autodesk, technical drawings, exploded views and animations are also possible.

Upon request, I carry out a collision analysis of the models or calculate the critical stresses and deformations using the finite element method.

Now let’s talk about how I can be of service to you.

Target groups:

  • Mechanical engineering companies
  • SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises)
  • engineering offices

Risk: Analyse. Evaluate. Responsibility.

In a nutshell

Risk Analysis

According to the EU machinery directive
Risk analysis software on request

Who is the risk analysis for?

First and foremost, it serves you as the manufacturer of the machine, as it ensures that the person operating the machine can work safely. To do this, I analyse and evaluate the limits of the machine and the safety-relevant aspects.

Essential health and safety requirements relating to the the design and construction of machinery


The manufacturer of machinery or his authorised representative must ensure that a risk assessment is carried out in order to determine the health and safety requirements which apply to the machinery. The machinery must then be designed and constructed taking into account the results of the risk assessment.

By the iterative process of risk assessment and risk reduction referred to above, the manufacturer or his authorised representative shall:

  • determine the limits of the machinery, which include the intended use and any reasonably foreseeable misuse thereof,
  • identify the hazards that can be generated by the machinery and the associated hazardous situations,
  • estimate the risks, taking into account the severity of the possible injury or damage to health and the probability of its occurrence,
  • evaluate the risks, with a view to determining whether risk reduction is required, in accordance with the objective of this Directive,
  • eliminate the hazards or reduce the risks associated with these hazards by application of protective measures, in the order of priority established in section 1.1.2(b).

Machinery Directive, 2006/42 / EC, Appendix I, general principles

  • Risk assessment
  • Health and safety requirements
  • Risks according to directive
  • Evaluation before and after measures taken

Criteria are for example:

  • Severity of possible injuries
  • Recognisability of the risk
  • Presence in the danger area
  • Probability of occurrence

I will create a risk analysis that will help you optimize your product and also serve as meaningful documentation.

Target groups:

  • Mechanical engineering companies
  • SMEs (small and medium-sized companies),
  • engineering offices
  • Importers of machines.
