Development of a Circularity Impact and Failure Analysis: Obsolescence and Recyclability Integration

Abstract: The application of the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) has been an established practice in systems engineering and engineering design for some decades. The benefit of applying FMEA is to raise engineers’ awareness of potential risks related to a specific design configuration so that corrective actions can be preventively prioritized to avoid potential […]

The Decision Arena: A model-centric interactive workspace for Product-Service System design

Abstract Design has become an intense ‘social activity’: working with others and sharing a common understanding are of critical importance to find satisfying solutions for customers and stakeholders. This leads to the issue of how to set up a collaborative, model-based physical environment to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing when different disciplines get together in […]
