Abstract: Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in new product development as modern society demands technicality, customer satisfaction, and economic efficiency during a product’s life cycle. Previous papers have commented more on the environmental aspects of sustainability in project management, whereas less attention has been paid to the measurable indicators of products. The knowledge about the product process structure is beginning to use sustainability indicators as part of the approach. Based on this idea, this paper suggests a combination of measurable indicators of sustainability that can be used in the product process structure of the construction industry. The aim is to identify a product process structure that is compatible with sustainable project management. The idea of product design structure matrix (DSM) will be introduced to identify the sustainability of products. By analysing the different dimensions of the measurable indicators, the sustainable products can be compared. This provides an integrated view of the product process structure when developing new products. This approach will then be applied to the smartphone industry as an illustrate example, which will provide ideas to improve the sustainability of new smartphone development. (More)
