Abstract

This paper discusses the development of a methodology proposed to be used as an assessment tool in sustainable engineering management. SMET is sustainable management of engineering technologies, aims to provide an assessment tool for engineers of projects and technologies alike in a comprehensive manner which includes, sustainability in all facets of design, environment (EIS), life cycle assessment (LCA) social consequences, human interaction and resource management.
