How the Integration of Environmental Concerns Modifies the Integrated Design Process
Regarding the economical and environmental pressure from consumers, legislation, and competitors companies need to be proactive and to propose new products in shorter times. For this, they need to change and adapt their design methods. To be effective, the design process must now address the entire life cycle of a product, from its definition to its end of life. Thus, integrated design is one solution to better design a product while considering and integrating all its aspects all along its life cycle. However, the environmental aspect is not so easy to integrate than another technical constraint. This paper aims at showing the changes induced by the integration of environmental concerns into the integrated design process. It involves notably new data, new tools, new actors or still new strategies.
