Optimization framework for desirable and sustainable complex systems – OSCAR

Submission summary

The objective of this research is to develop a new ecodesign approach for complex systems allowing through a wide exploration in the upstream phases of a design project to identify optimal solutions on all the environmental impact categories taking into account dynamics and spatialization aspects. 2 major scientific problems are targeted: 1) the modelling of new environmental aspects in the form of generic constraints at the same time on the Products architectures and Life cycles architectures and 2) the definition of a new ecodesign method integrating environmental criteria and attractiveness for the customer from the upstream phases.
The developped software OSCAR will demonstrate that we can effectively invert the ecodesign problem, and so make a design of complex system truly compatible with the sustainable development (satisfying environmental objectives a priori defined and simultaneously maximizing desirability for the users).
