Digital Sustainability Implementation Package (DSIP)
Research Project, 2021 – 2023

Digital Sustainability Implementation Package - DSIP
Purpose and goal: The purpose of DSIP is to enable a strategic sustainability perspective early in the product innovation process. DSIP compile a knowledge platform, a data management platform, and novel digital support tools to evaluate, measure, estimate, predict, set requirement, and simulate expected sustainability performance for alternative product concepts early in the development.
The project objective is to demonstrate, validate and generalize DSIP for different industrial applications in collaboration with 16 committed project partners. Expected results and effects: The results from step 2 are validated DSIP capabilities to efficiently manage sustainability- and engineering data for traceability and reuse during the product life cycle, to measure expected sustainability impact for different concepts, to design and evaluate different sustainable solutions, to improve decision making in the product innovation process and guide the product developers with prerequisites to innovate sustainable products and circular solutions to the market. Long-term, DSIP will influence the development of standards, tools and other control mechanisms. Approach and implementation: The project is organized in five interconnected work packages that will ensure suitable industrial use cases for testing and validation of the DSIP toolkit, and for which the digital platform will be developed. Validation is done from applying DSIP on minimum three industrial cases. In addition, a business plan for scale-up, commersialisation and international implementation will be developed. The project is performed in open collaboration, with 16 companies engaged to secure project deliverables.
