Concepts for Pro-Active Life Cycle Design Support Tools 2000-01-1502

When categorising the available ecodesign tools according to the methodological design phases and steps, most design for environment tools prove to be analysis oriented and mainly suitable for the final, detailed design phases. This paper emphasises emerging methods allowing the integration of environmental issues earlier in the design process and in a more pro-active way. These methods are based on a context sensitive access to structured guidelines and examples. Finally, the integration of these pro-active tools in a holistic life cycle design system, including also analysis techniques such as life cycle assessment, is shortly described.
