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.
