Ecodesign+ is a software meant for early design stages and assists engineering designers to proceed with an environmental evaluation of their products. Additionally, the software allows benchmarking the environmental profile of the product with similar products.

Product data can be imported from CAD models, e.g. data regarding material constitution of a certain part. The algorithms and methods used in this software are based on my research I had conducted through my PhD and thorugh cooperations with the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia in Spain. I was responsible for the technical management of the beta-version. Meanwhile, the software is availabe to the public.


The project was funded by The Technology Agency of the City of Vienna (ZIT).
