Abstract

Due to variable customer expectations; it is required to highlight the existing gaps in “demand” patterns where the stakeholders observe the end consumers over a focused viewpoint. A systematic critical review is conducted to identify and address the literature gaps in a methodical manner. Given the lack of life-cycle analysis (LCA) in many manufacturing industries, the research presents the use of appropriate strategies for designing new eco-friendly products utilising engineering knowledge and R&D innovation. However, a comprehensive LCA would be carried out in future stages of the research to enable industrial designers to critique the performance and identify the potential environmental impacts associated with the product lifecycle. The research proposes to develop a novel framework for an effective linkage between supply-demand chain approaches and the new product development (NPD) processes considering innovative environmental practices. The results of this study can be utilised by researchers and practitioners researching within similar context.
