Product designer

Improving innovation and the ensuring your products are the best they can be - that is your task as a product designer. Quality, functionality and production costs have not lost their importance, but are nowadays supplemented by environmental aspects of the products' life cycle. While in the past compliance to existing environmental legislation was enough, you will now have to act with more foresight in order to anticipate likely future environmental regulations. So the sustainability approach to take with respect to products is (as with the organisational viewpoint): being successful in future.

Services subject to existing or forthcoming regulations that you have to consider during product development are relevant for all life phases of a product. Be it cleaner production, resource-saving or improved recycling - these experts can help you with what you anyway 'must' do .

Many companies stick to these "must-dos", but there are other aspects that you "should" cover, including taking a wider view, or looking look 'beyond your own nose'. This includes looking at the indirect effects of your products (or future products). In addition to the production costs that affect you directly, what are the costs incurred by your customers during the use and end-of-life phases, that may also affect you? Find out about the benchmarks of your product group to be able to set appropriate improvement measures and communicate advantages. These services support you in answering these and many more questions.

After doing what you "must" and "should" do, what do you "want" to do? Bring your lead in LCA knowledge to the finish line. In other words, integrate life cycle aspects into the design phase, for your own and your customers' benefit.

No matter whether you must, should or want to do something, you need to know how. how to do it. Imparting expert knowledge is the focus of the training services offered .
