Eco-design methodology definition and G.EN.ESI platform design
This first WP aims to define the G.EN.ESI. eco-design methodology and the related software platform architecture and functions. In details the specific objectives are as follows:
To analyse the product design process in order to formalize a new design approach for facilitating the adoption of Eco-design methodology and tools
To structure the Eco-design methodology and the related design supporting tools in order to achieve a right balance between usability and robustness of results; in this way the acceptance of product designers will be high
To translate the G.EN.ESI. methodology in a clear architecture of the integrated software platform and also of the single software tools in order to easily manage the following systems implementation and optimization phases
To design the G.EN.ESI. platform in terms of software tools functionalities, flow of data within G.EN.ESI. environment and with the other systems used during the design phase (CAD/CAX/PLM etc.), eco-design knowledge management, etc.
