Utilisation Of A Toolbox For Computer Aided Development Of Led Lighting Products
LED lighting products have been increasingly utilized in the world nowadays, and there is a demand for the LED
lighting product developers to effectively select tools to eco-design and manufacture of these type of products. To meet such
a demand, a toolbox for design and manufacture of LED lighting products has been developed. In this paper, the demand for
the types of tools suitable for the toolbox is discussed first, which is based on semi-structured survey results. The toolbox
content and the integration of the tools into the LED product development process are then presented. The description of the
integration is focused on computer aided tools, due to the restriction on the length of this paper. A case study is provided to
illustrate the integration process.
