The integration of environmental aspects in the design process is getting more and more covered by the scientific research. Owing to the issued regulations, industries tend to reduce their environmental impacts (EIs) while keeping a minimal manufacturing cost. The process plan operations order has an influence on the EIs and cost of a product. In this paper, we propose a new based scenarios methodology by using feature technology (FT) which allows the non-environmental expert designer to choose the most optimal manufacturing scenario with the best compromise EIs/Cost. First, we present an overview of works using the FT in CAD phase to reduce EIs and cost of a manufacturing process. Secondly, we propose a new methodology based on both FT and scenarisation which helps inexperienced eco-designers. Finally, a case study is considered to validate the proposed approach.
