Industry projects show that Life Cycle Thinking and the idea of ECODESIGN are still not well established among engineers in product devel-opment. Available tools such as the ECODESIGN Product, Investigation, Learning and Optimization Tool (PILOT) [Wimmer, Züst, Lee 2004] may help to implement ECODESIGN into product develop-ment considerations and to improve an already existing product. However, an application of those tools in the decisive early stages of the product development process remains difficult for design engineers.
A systematic tool called `Ecodesign Decision Boxes´ was developed for integrating the concept of ECODESIGN into product development in order to help engineers to develop an environmentally sound product which has an optimised environmental performance[Ostad Ahmad Ghorabi 2005].
