Abstract:Jacobs Douwe Egberts Professional is the business-to-business department for coffee appliances. This department currently lacks a strategy on how to deal with Design-for-Environment (DfE). This thesis proposes a framework, including tools, on how to improve sustainable coffee machine development. The framework consists out of 3 tools. The first tool consists out of 7 Principles each containing various guidelines. The second tool is a checklist based on the same guidelines and can be used to validate the developed component, structure or system. This results in a score that can be viewed in the Eco-Performance Wheel. The last tool is the comparative Life-Cycle-Assessment-lite. This tool allows JDE Professional to model the impact of a concept they have developed based on materials, production and End-of-Life. The tool is designed in such a way that it can be used early on in the design process. Furthermore, the tool allows employees to model the impact of their products without the need of extensive knowledge about Life-Cycle-Assessments. In conclusion, a framework has been developed that includes guidelines, checklists, and an LCA-lite. These tools have been incorporated in the current workflow JDE Professional to help them become better Design-for-Environment designers and engineers for future product development.
