Project status: Complete

Thrust area: New Design Paradigms and Processes

Research team:

As a product design progresses, changes to the design can become more costly to an organization due to commitments of: design time spent, materials used, processes developed, or products already delivered to customers. Thus, an organization can benefit significantly when the best green concept is identified at the earliest possible stage of design. This project saves these costs to companies by mitigating the two main obstacles to green design by finding the best concept quickly.
