Early steps of product development determine essential features in all phases of the life cycle of a product. Thus design offers the largest degree of freedom in influencing the characteristics of a product. During the recent years the need of environment friendly products lead to the development of eco-design processes. Unfortunately many aspects of eco-design concepts and conventional design work flow are very different and sometime contradictory. The established design process consists of a sequence of decisions to be made, mainly based on technological and economic aspects, but in general not considering the environmental consequences. In a new approach we analyze the individual steps of a conventional design process and introduce environmental aspects at appropriate instances. Screening tools and guidelines are needed to base design decisions on technological, economic, and ecological criteria. The paper outlines where to integrate new decision criteria into the micro system design flow, how they interact with technological and economic aspects and where possible conflicts occur. This research is part of the project "MikroNetz", which focuses on development of an environmental friendly switched power supply. The approach results in an integrated eco-design methodology, fulfilling also the upcoming requirements e.g. of the European energy-using products (EuP) draft directive.
