The number of different materials used in a single car body is growing, while the complexity involved in selecting joining processes in design is increasing. This paper will review the requirements for joining connections and for methods used to choose joining processes in car body design. Existing approaches will then be evaluated based on these requirements and the identified deficits discussed. Demonstration will be given that a new approach is needed: one which considers costs and different variants and which can estimate properties of joining processes for new material combinations.
