Can sustainable manufacturing and use of products be planned?
Within the framework of the lecture series »Smart Economy for sustainable employment and sustainable prosperity«, organized by the German Trade Union Confederation, it became possible to communicate the viable options for achieving ecologically, economically and socially responsible value creation to a widespread audience. Professor Dr.-Ing Rainer Stark explained which challenges and potentials could result from a transition of the current economic system from a product development-perspective. In his lecture with the title »Smart product development in the fourth industrial revolution – Can sustainable manufacturing and use of products be planned?« he accentuated the increasing integration between- and within products as well as the corresponding influence on the dimensions of sustainability. After the lecture an interesting discussion raised with a primary focus on implications of increasing digitalization on different work environments. (tb)
