Abstract

An Eco-innovative product design tool combining the concept of green design with failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) is presented in this study. The proposed approach is on the basis of FMEA structure well known in industry and takes the environment, safety and health into consideration. The checklist of eco-failure can guide designers or engineers to find the more serious burdens and the recommended actions those come from the TRIZ contradiction matrix help them to search for feasible solutions. Both of them will much shorten the time for brainstorm and make up for the lack of experiment. An example was also conducted to verify the practicality of the proposed tool.
