Environmental consciousness has gained increasing interest in recent years; and product life cycle design that aims to maximize total value while minimizing environmental load and costs should be implemented. To achieve that; the processes of idea generation and decision-making for eco-business strategies; as well as the design of a target product and its life cycle options; should be systematically supported. This paper proposes a strategic decision-making method for eco-business planning so that a designer can easily find a set of eco-business ideas that effectively improve environmental and economic performance simultaneously. A decision-making procedure based on this method is also illustrated with a simplified example of a laptop computer business.

Keywords: Product service system (PSS); eco-business; total performance indicator (TPI); idea-generation method; eco-business rule; eco-business case base
