Situation

 

DfE is a collective term for technologies that allow the design of eco-friendly products. The aim: Sustainable products that remain cost-effective and have fewer negative environmental impacts during the entire product life cycle.

 

About 80% of the total costs of a product are already determined in the concept and design phase. This also applies to sustainability: about 80% of the sustainability aspects of a product are already defined before Start of Production.

 

This means that the impact of products on the environment can be reduced by informed decisions in the design stage.

Challenges

 

In order to make such informed decisions, sustainability and compliance data and criteria from all phases of the product life cycle have to be taken into account at the early stage of designing – from substance data to use-phase aspects and recycling concepts. This data has to be aggregated and made accessible.

Solution

 

With iPoint’s integrated solutions, designers and engineers can access and use the relevant compliance and sustainability data in their familiar application environment.

 

Via iPoints integration interfaces, data and information on components and materials, substances and mixtures, dangerous goods or toxicology, environmental hazards, use and recycling are aggregated from multiple sources throughout the supply network as well as from company-internal processes and production stages.
