Main Presenter: Neil D'Souza
Session: Poster Session 2
30% of GDP is generated from new products each year. Yet, less than 1% of new products have sustainability as a design parameter. Market demand together with regulation is now changing that. But, how to solve the problem of embedding sustainability in design?
Product engineers need to be empowered to get real-time feedback on designs and decisions easily understandable and without the help of domain experts. They need to be able to not only understand sustainability parameters of designs, but also how it effects criteria such as compliance, costs, health and safety. Additionally, product engineers could benefit from assistive support on how to improve product designs for sustainability.
Digital Twins of product supply chains can be the solution to embed ecodesign in the design process
