Transportation is equipment which absorbs energy. In the era of the energy rising prices one seeks solutions that can result in savings due to reduced energy consumption. The world of science and industry is continuously looking for savings in this area. In simple logic, we can talk about savings when there is a reduction in kerb weight of driven object. This paper presents an optimization method that can be used to reduce the weight of vehicles. Mass optimization is a process that has to be conducted on basing on the assumed criteria and, as in the case described here, the normative requirements. Presented process begins with the definition of the area to be analysed and then decomposition and selecting the typical construction nodes after that continues to picking library solutions based on which, the selection algorithm is built. User calls back the criteria and selects it interesting solution: the extreme: a light and expensive, heavy and cheap or many other combinations. The study aimed to achieve the effect of optimization based on computational methods in the final stage of the experimental verification, depending on the case.
