Abstract

The methodology of parametric Ecodesign incorporates proposing reference products for environmental evaluation systematically and will help using life cycle assessment data to optimize product designs and to implement Ecodesign strategies already in the early stages of product development. The parametric description of the reference product correlates technical and environmental data. A comparison of the resulting environmental impacts of a certain design with an appropriate reference of this product is facilitated then. By knowing the potential environmental impacts and by being aware whether selected impacts become higher or lower due to design changes, an optimization of design and environmental performance can be achieved.

Keywords: parametric ecodesign, design for environment, life cycle assessment (LCA), product families

DESIGN 2008 - 10th International Design ConferenceDESIGN 2008 Conference was founded on the continuous development of organization and evaluation procedure that resulted in a capacity to deliver procedures and conditions of communicative competence. To assist the process of development for the engineering design research community the organizers of DESIGN 2008 propsed seven core areas for the conference as described below. It was required explicitly from all contributors to show how they are contributing to the overall area to emerge communities...
