Innovative design engineers are incorporating a powerful set of sustainable practices in their product designs to improve the integrity of the product – and not just to reduce their carbon footprint. These practices impact every stage in the product lifecycle from ideation to board layout, to material and component selection, manufacturing and assembly, and end-of-life processing. Not only are these practices desirable, they are becoming mandatory at many leading manufacturers as they can significantly reduce both cost and waste. A deep knowledge of sustainable product design fundamentals is essential in today's competitive product design environment.
Peter Buca, Vice President Technology & Innovation, at Parker Hannifin
, joins Design News' Bruce Rayner for a lively conversation about incorporating the concepts of sustainability in product design.
