SIMS, Evaluating a Sustainable Design Process to Create Jewelry
Sustainable design calls for in-depth understanding of the design processes, factors that should be in place for a regenerative and transfigurative design and also knowing the practical implications and challenges of designing a sustainable product or service. Human Factors and Ergonomics, provide design principles and practices that can ensure that human needs are incorporated and integrated within the design and in doing so ensure that the end system/product/service is sustainable. These models are mainly focused on review and evaluation phases of the design. SIMS (our proposed framework) allows for in-depth exploration of a design outcome/creative process during its inception (i.e., conceptual design). In the present paper, SIMS process (Scalabale, Interactive, Modular Simulation) will be used and documented during developing a sustainable jewelry design.
