  • A product's "greenness" is a factor that more and more consumers are paying attention to.  As this influence grows in the market, many companies see this as a new and unfamiliar challenge to their business.  Sustainable design is an important strategy that companies can use to reduce the environmental impact of the products they produce.  But up until now, how to do sustainable design has been a mystery to these companies.   SolidWorks Sustainability has been created so that sustainable design becomes easy to understand and effortless to employ.  Features such as its Dashboard, Customized Reports, and Find Similar Material allow users to easily improve their designs and communicate their accomplishments in a compelling way.  This is seen as so important, that DS SolidWorks has included some of these sustainable design features in every seat of SolidWorks 2010.  This presentation will cover those features and those provided in the full SolidWorks Sustainability product.
  • The underlying technology used to perform the LCA is from PE International of Stuttgart Germany. They have extensive experience and credibility in this space.
