Section: DESIGN METHODS
Despite the availability of numerous tools for sustainable product development and ecodesign, there is currently no convincing solution which enables design engineers to consider the complex consequences of their decisions on the triple bottom line in early design phases. Model-based Sustainable Product Development aims at closing this gap by providing enhanced modelling options for decision consequences along the product lifecycle. Based on a framework for specifying causal chains between design decisions and sustainability impact application examples for these models are presented.
