Internalizing environmental impacts in design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper addresses the problem of incorporating environmental impacts into the engineering product design process in a meaningful way. Tradeoffs between environmental impacts, engineering performance and customer satisfaction are sometimes unavoidable. The methodology demonstrated here provides a framework for making these tradeoff decisions. An example of material selection in the automotive industry is presented. Sensitivity analysis demonstrates that the model can be used to determine the effect of a variety of possible regulatory scenarios on the best material choice.
