Abstract

This work presents an academic initiative to introduce sustainability in engineering design education based on a case study approach that uses indicators to measure the sustainability performance of a product. The proposed approach uses strategic actions to redesign the product and to measure the sustainability performance under the new conditions. The performances of different alternatives resulting from the strategic interventions are compared to determine the most sustainable solution considering the effect of the strategic actions on the three pillars of sustainability.
