This study develops an ecodesign strategy for product research and development according to the concept of product life-cycle design. The life cycle assessment (LCA) model in this study is used to develop a design strategy for achieving the best environmental efficiency from the products. Furthermore, the development directions of green products decided by this assessment model can forward the goal of green design within the company. This study searches a life cycle assessment model for submitting the improved methods on environmental impact from products when processing green product analysis for designers. The methodology and procedures for developing the design strategy of green products under life-cycle assessment models is the concept of structured system analysis. The study applies the material cycle, energy use, toxic emissions assessment matrix (MET) and the checking list of green design for the LCA analytical tools. In addition, it uses the ecodesign strategy wheel (ESW) to develop the possible design solution and then establishes the ecodesign strategy of green products. The results of this study helps designers to understand the improved degree on environmental protection from products. In conclusion, form the application of a case study. it appears that a company has achieved the green design of a notebook computer through the application of an ecodesign strategy based on LCA
