A Method for Green Design — Professor Steven Eppinger
LGO Web Seminar Series
Professor Steven Eppinger
A Method for Green Design
Presentation Date: April 30, 2010
Abstract: When LFM/LGO and SDM alumni took my Product Design and Development class, we did not teach a method for design for environment (DFE). This back-to-the-classroom web seminar is intended to fill this gap with a brief session highlighting some emerging best practices in this important area. Based on a recently completed chapter (to be published next year in my Product Design and Development textbook), I will highlight some of the ways that businesses can think about the environmental impact of their products and how they can work effectively to reduce or eliminate these impacts.
Bio: Steven D. Eppinger is Professor of Management Science at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He also holds the General Motors Leaders for Global Operations Chair and has a joint appointment in MIT's Engineering Systems Division. Prof. Eppinger served as Deputy Dean of the MIT Sloan School from 2004 to 2009. He has created an interdisciplinary product development course in which graduate students from engineering, management, and industrial design programs collaborate to develop new products. He also teaches MIT's executive programs in the areas of product development and complex project management. Prof. Eppinger has co-authored a leading textbook entitled Product Design and Development published by McGraw-Hill. Currently in its fourth edition, the text is used by hundreds of universities around the world. Dr. Eppinger's research is applied to improving complex design processes in order to accelerate industrial practices. He is a pioneer in development of the widely used Design Structure Matrix method for managing complex system design. He has authored over seventy articles in refereed academic journals and conferences. He has received MIT's Graduate Student Council Teaching Award, the Sloan School's Award for Innovation and Excellence in Management Education, and twice has received the ASME Best Paper Award in Design Theory and Methodology. Prof. Eppinger received S.B., S.M., and Sc.D. degrees from MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering before joining the MIT faculty in 1988.
