- sustainable strategies and support using knowledge on sustainability form different disciplines of engineering and sciences.
Which are the aspects that need to be considered when developing sustainable systems that require knowledge from more engineering disciplines? How can the aspects concerning the consumer / user and the social elements related be integrated in such a multidisciplinary approach?
How can innovation lead to sustainable solutions? How can innovation in technology, social system, transport, global policies affect sustainability?
Which are the available methods, guidelines and instruments for assessing sustainability and which are their limitations?
Which are the theories they are based on? How can these instruments contribute to obtaining sustainability both at macro level (organization) and at micro level (products and processes)? How can these methods and instruments be successfully implemented in organizations? How can QM instruments, Six Sigma, Kaizen, PLM and LCA be integrated and which are the aspects regarding interoperability? How were the LCA aspects regarding these instruments incorporated in the data bases and how generic are these instruments?
Which are the sustainability related standards that can be applied and in what stage of product’s development can they be applied?
Which standards are related to design, management and how generic are these standards?
