The focus of engineering design on achieving a superior product from functional and economic is now shifting toward sustainable product design which considers environment, economic and social aspects. As the awareness of environmental knowledge is emerging among consumer, the market demand is increasing proportionally for sustainable product. Therefore, the new product development method is required to fulfill today's market need. It can be achieved by integrating the sustainable elements of environment, social and economic aspect into the engineering design throughout it product lifecycle. Life cycle assessment is being used to assist designer or engineer but it possess drawback which due to the large amount of data requirement and is time consuming. As a result, simplify and understandable methods and tools are required for guiding the designer in developing sustainable product. This paper aims to summarize the current methods and tool for integrating sustainability perspective into the product design process. In addition, potential room for improvement can be identified from this study. As a conclusion, this paper also proposes the future research in developing a new tool for measuring sustainable product design with considering the three main elements of sustainability i.e. environmental, economic and social aspects.
