ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATION SYSTEM FOR ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS PRODUCT DESIGN
The product designers are demanded to harmonize the technological, the economical, the social, and the environmental domain of the product. In the early stage of product design, in order to create and verify the new idea of the product, it is necessary for product designer to easily and quickly get the overview and the insight of the influences of designing product in the environment. We propose the concept and the implementation method of new environmental simulation system based on the interaction of the subjects in the environment. The env. sim. system consists of 7 systems (subject, object, energy, human resource, economic, information, and nature system). The changed subject changes the flow of the object, energy, human resource, money, information, and natural object.
