Getting Hands-on Experience in Sustainable Product Design

By Pamela J. Gordon, Technology Forecasters Blog

Mar 04, 2015

A team exploring sustainable design, during a hands-on TFI workshop hosted by Creation Technologies

Read. Listen. Watch. Business professionals spend most of their learning time in these modes. You are reading this blog post, for example.

Then, there’s “do” — the tactile mode, which is a powerful component of learning to design efficient products that (1) meet customers’ needs while reducing their cost of using them, and concurrently (2) decrease costs of manufacturing, compliance, and distribution while reducing environmental impacts.

In keeping with the “do” mode, we recently conducted a hands-on workshop in sustainable product design, hosted by electronics design and manufacturing services company Creation Technologies in Silicon Valley. Participants included managers and designers from Creation and its OEM customers, as they collaborated and experienced DfE in new ways.

View a slide show to “experience” profitable DfE principles vicariously — through the hands of the participants. And register for a free webinar to ask questions of some of those who ran and participated in the workshop.

By the end of the workshop, the participants were convinced not only of Design-for-Environment’s (DfE) customer benefits and cost-savings advantages, but also of DfE’s regulatory-compliance advantages. They learned that by proactively deploying DfE principles at the start of the design processes, they can meet current and future environmental regulations more efficiently: reducing costs, time, and risk.

The hands-on workshop accompanies TFI’s updated DfE Online Training: Learn to Design Profitable, Responsible, and Sustainable Products for the 21st Century.
