The adjustment of micro system components with laser forming using especially designed sheet metal actuator systems is a new and promising technology. However, due to the complexity of the design challenge and the contradicting targets that have to be considered computer assistance for the design of the actuator systems is needed. In order to build such a system several steps have to be taken. First, the actuators have to be modeled with all necessary data. Second, quality criteria have to be defined and fully automated assessment modules for every single objective have to be implemented. And third, an optimization system which utilizes the assessment modules must be developed to improve an initial design. This paper presents a solution for each of these steps. It closes with first results of a reduced version of the system as well as an outlook on the next development steps.
