From first ideas to model acceptance.
The job of a designer is characterised by a love of innovation and detail. Years go by between the first ideas and the model acceptance, years in which the designers work together to incrementally create the definitive vehicle. In a team process, the next generation of a Mercedes-Benz arises from initially competing drafts. The design process is an inherent part of the development process (Mercedes-Benz Development System).
The designers work closely together with the research, engineering and production departments, coordinate vehicle dimensions, material concepts and manufacturing processes, and in so doing also ensure producibility.
