Software Tool


InDeaTe—Innovation Design Database and Template—is a knowledge-driven, sustainable design process support tool, aimed at improving sustainability considerations in design. It comprises a design process template that guides ‘life cycle thinking’ into design by creating intersections of stages of design with life cycle phases at which design activities are directed. The tool also has a design database of sustainability definitions and indicators, and methods and tools, for solving a given design problem by supporting the template. InDeaTe can support design of sustainable products, services and manufacturing systems by retaining its inherent characteristic of exploration and innovation, while offering a multitude of possibilities and routes towards achieving the design goal.
