Product Architecture Customization Decision Support Tool Development for End-of-Life Options and Servitization Potential

Project status: Current

Thrust area: Design Optimization

Research team: Gul Kremer

Product architecture designs that do not consider customizability for the environmental regulations of markets require additional design costs to successfully avoid over- or under-designing for sustainability. The decision support tool to be developed will help design and remanufacturing engineers to design products that match the local resources (e.g., distance from available remanufacturing, collection facilities) that render EOL options and potential servitization more profitable.
