PDMA and Invention Machine Host Green Innovation Panel in Second Life

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The green movement has shifted from marketing hype to the reality of delivering cost-effective products that meet regulatory compliance and customer demand. This shift has created a host of engineering challenges for companies around the world - from high cost of designing new technologies and material replacements to varying regulations in different countries and difficulty in measuring return on green innovation.

To address these challenges, the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) is joining forces with Invention Machine to host a virtual panel discussion in Second Life. In this session, innovation experts will share best practices on creating eco-friendly designs by leveraging existing technology as well as building infrastructures that make innovation repeatable and sustainable.

The one-hour discussion will take place on PDMA Island, a virtual meeting place in Second Life ( www.secondlife.com). PDMA recently created the island to facilitate product development conversations among innovation practitioners. The island's resources will be open to the public shortly.
