STOSIP - Strategic, Tactical and Operational implementation of Sustainability into the Innovation Process

What is it?

STOSIP has the objective to support manufacturing companies to integrate and implement sustainability on strategic, tactical and operational levels.

Current status:

  • A first protoype for business case simulator for ecodesign.
  • Self-assessment templates to measure sustainability implementation level.
  • Process- oriented indicators to support and enhance ecodesign implementation.
  • A systematic review to summarize research challenges in introducing sustainability in value models.
  • Descriptive study at VCE including value mapping of New Sustainable Compliant Technologies.
  • Integrating sustainability in Technology Readiness Level framework.
  • A literature review to investigate the current state of the art for risk management in relation to a strategic sustainability perspective.
  • Further development of the sustainability design space and clarification of how it can be applied –for example a method for assessing material criticality has been developed.
  • A first step to clarify social sustainability and how to use that together with ecological sustainability in product development.

Expected results:

  • A business case for sustainability implementation in the product innovation process.
  • A road map from measuring the maturity level for sustainability implementation.
  • An aproach for how to quantify and visualize the progress of sustainability implementation of different solutions.
  • To provide engineers with a quantifiable assessment model that makes the value of sustainable innovations explicit
  • To find a systematic way for how to integrate sustainability in the risk management processes and improve the support tools
  • How to make the sustainability concept more concrete and clear for companies, concretizing the sustainability design space
  • To improve the clarification and operationalize social sustainability in the decision support
