The goal of this article is to demonstrate the dependencies between product development and material flow. The first part provides a compressed introduction to the topic. From the perspective of development, so called DfX (Design for X) approaches and methods are discussed as well as their possible influence on the business process, especially on the material flow. The purpose of this part is to provide a comprehensive overview of research notes in the given technical fields. The next part contains main steps of individual life cycle phases of a specific product – thee various methods of construction. It is figuratively explained how the selected type of final construction affects individual elements of material flow from the perspective of manufacturing, assembly, logistics, and sustainability. In the conclusion part, the research and the developed implementation is evaluated. The conclusion also contains an outline of possible future development.
