Solid Edge EcoDesigner
Integrated, Easy to Use, Sustainable Product design
Design sustainable products by performing a screening LCA analysis earlier in the design cycle.
Globally, various regulations are forcing manufacturers to understand and improve the environmental footprint of their products. Emerging Product Stewardship initiatives will also shift responsibility to manufacturers for environmentally safe disposal of their products. This in turn is forcing product designers to look beyond their gates; both upstream and downstream in their value chain to review their material, manufacturing process and sourcing choices from an environmental perspective.
In many ways, Sustainable Product Design is about lean engineering and taking waste out of your Products Lifecycle.
Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) is the science of environmental assessment defined by ISO 14040:2006 and ISO 14044:2006. It specifies rigorous and standardized steps and protocol for an environmental impact assessment over the entire lifecycle of the product. Performing a full LCA can require significant expertise and effort.
Solid Edge EcoDesigner comes in two versions:
Standard Version: This standalone version uses pre-calculated datasets from Eco Invent, USLCI and ELCD which are leading providers of Lifecycle Inventory Data (LCI).
Enterprise Version: Connects with and performs real-time analysis with SimaPro the world’s leading LCA Software from PRe’ Consultants (www.pre-sustainability.com). This allows extensive collaboration amongst your Product Designers and Sustainability experts.
