Eyes on emissions:

How design engineers can influence the Product Carbon Footprint

Question mark Which emissions are produced during the manufacture, use and disposal of a product? This issue is becoming increasingly important for manufacturing companies. Legal requirements must be met, consumers expect sustainably produced products and energy saving is also important from an economic perspective.

Design engineers and developers in particular need to focus on this issue as approximately 80% of future costs and emissions are determined in the construction phase. The choice of materials, processing methods and manufacturing techniques has a significant impact on the Product Carbon Footprint.

Exclamation markOur simus classmate software provides answers to these pressing issues. By systematically analysing the model and automatically assigning manufacturing processes, processing stages and machines, our customers receive reliable and comprehensible information that can be directly used to calculate the Product Carbon Footprint.
