Makersite launches AI-Enabled Ecodesign Dashboard

AI-platform automatically refines product models to manage cost and carbon in real-time

Makersite, a software company pioneering a new approach to sustainable product design and sourcing, today launched an AI-enabled Ecodesign Dashboard that helps product designers and engineers make smarter design decisions when considering environmental impacts and cost optimization.

Currently, less than 1% of new products are developed with sustainability in mind due to an inability to quickly understand how to improve a product and the trade-offs that need to be made. However, to comply with emerging regulations such as the EU’s Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) and reporting for Digital Product Passports, manufacturers need to begin preparing for the inclusion of ecodesign within their development and sourcing processes by moving away from manual reporting and a dependency on experts.

Makersite addresses this with an Ecodesign Dashboard that provides engineers with a trade-off analysis supported by clear, visualized data of the environmental and cost impacts of each component chosen within their design. This visibility allows product teams to accurately weigh the consequences of design choices across the entire lifecycle.

The Ecodesign Dashboard is powered by Makersite’s activity-based modeling and digital twin technology that leverages deep machine learning informed by a comprehensive database of 140+ supply chains to make better, more informed product decisions.

“The ability to holistically weigh complex design criteria to balance cost, carbon and risk provides insight and context that designers and manufactures can readily implement to make more informed, less environmentally intensive products,” said Neil D’Souza, CEO and Founder of Makersite. “This is an exercise that once took teams of experts weeks or months to complete and can now be handled with AI in a matter of minutes by the very teams who create these products each day.”

In addition to streamlining design decision-making, the Makersite Ecodesign Dashboard allows for the exporting of visualizations and data for use in internal systems, corporate and regulatory disclosures, and offline calculations. The dashboard provides AI-enabled lifecycle assessment (LCA) and carbon footprint data that can be shared directly from Makersite with customers and stakeholders.
