Abstract

A novel method is presented, including a material criticality list and sustainability compliance index. The method aims to support an estimation of the vulnerability of a product concept due to material criticality and strategically guide early design decisions. A jet engine component design team evaluated the method. It was understood that the method increased communication and clarification regarding material criticality. Further, it became apparent that the method provided a collaboration link between the design team and the business development team.

Keywords: material criticality, product development, sustainable product development, decision support
