The presentation will introduce our house of competence, KIT and Fraunhofer ICT and introduce our MMM approach to engineered lightweight solutions for specific industries. This comprises of the development of virtual process chains, material and manufacturing solutions for relevant technologies focusing on automated high volume manufacturing. The presentation will highlight automotive examples (thermoplastic and thermoset composites) and our approaches and specifically will focus on the wet compression molding process as utilized by BMW in the I series with carbon fiber body in white. To describe this process virtually in order to accelerate part development and consider manufacturability in an early stage of the product development the investigated process variants will be showcased and every step of the manufacturing process will be demonstrated. The presentation will end with a few words about circularity and recycling technologies and will give an outlook
