Abstract

Modularisation of products makes re-use or update of some of its parts in the next product a greater possibility. Such re-use is preferable to material recycling when the corresponding energy consumption for recycling is a key environmental impact driver. Research has already been conducted into such an idea, and re-use is applied in cameras or copiers for example. Design engineers serve as an important source of opinion in the identification of potential modules. A fuzzy logic model consisting of a fuzzy measure, linguistic variables indicating the reliability of a data source, and a fuzzy integral is used.
