About this Unit
Reflecting upon the life cycle of products and their components is important in understanding how decisions at the design level impact on people, resources, sustainable goals and how these contribute towards sustainability-oriented local and global value chains. This unit focuses on sustainable decision-making at the design level. It challenges and motivates students towards using sustainability principles to promote good Design for Disassembly (DfD) practices with linkages to material durability, and material reuse. Through a project-based approach, students will appraise manufacturing considerations for product design applying in succession Design for Manufacturing, Assembly and Disassembly (DfM, DfA, DfD) principles to their products and reflect on product lifecycle management best practice.
