The development of sustainable and resource-efficient products requires
new forms of support which provides design engineers with transparency on
the results of their decisions and at the same time limit additional effort. The
integration of product (e.g. CAD) and process (e.g. Life Cycle Assessment
(LCA)) based models can be seen as a promising solution for that purpose.
Currently existing prospective approaches like SolidWorks Sustainability Pro
only provide support on a time consuming “Trial- and Error”- basis without
real guidance for achieving optimal solutions. Hence, a new approach will be
presented in this work which is based on building and selecting product variants
by utilizing existing PLM solutions and GaBi (a software for conducting
