Environmentally Sound Product Development of Light Fittings
As an integral part of product development a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was carried out in order to assess the environmental quality and resource consumption of light fittings. An analysis of customer requirements, using Quality Function Deployment (QFD), and a Life Cycle Cost analysis (LCC) were also made. Lastly, simulations of potential product improvement alternatives were carried out. The project was a part of the Nordic project on Environmentally sound Product development (the NEP-project) as a case-project in the work of method development.
