Simulation plays a critical role in the design of products, materials and manufacturing processes. Increasingly, simulation is replacing physical tests to ensure product reliability and quality thereby facilitating steady reductions in design cycles.
However, with the current global environmental crisis, there are gaps in the simulation tools used by industry to provide reliable results from which effective and equitable decisions can be made regarding environmental impacts at different stages of product realization and life cycle.
When designing products, designers must cater for a multitude of technical, economic, social, environmental, and political requirements among others. This phase helps identify and conceptualize a marketable product, and create the complete description of it. With today’s growing concerns for green products and green manufacturing, generating the right product and manufacturing specifications poses significant challenge
To support sustainable manufacturing from a regulatory and compliance point of view, standards and inspection procedures must be studied and incorporated in the new simulation models for raw materials, manufactured part, production process parameters, including verification and calibration
