The G.EN.ESI Software Platform takes a bottom up approach, supporting the practical application of eco-design, through the efficient provision of environmental data and design decision support. This information is fully integrated with traditional design tools such as CAD and PLM, helping ensure a streamlined integration within existing design practice.
The G.EN.ESI software platform tools allow product development managers and designers to assess and address the environmental life cycle impacts of their design, from early stage design efforts to product manufacture.
By using the G.EN.ESI software platform, design teams are able to:
- efficiently collate and store environmental data from throughout the supply chain;
- use real time environmental data and life cycle assessment to support design decisions;
- practically implement the G.EN.ESI methodology, supporting the management of eco-design and the development of a continual improvement approach.
