Main objecive of the subject : Key idea: Demanufacturing strategies are the future of manufacturing in the circular economy. Components and materials are removed from systems to be transformed for reuse in different systems. It is necessary to develop an integrated design approach bringing together all the actors/expertises related to a future recovery value chain. This design approach, supported by different design resources, will provide technical recommendations for products, end-of-life processes and the final description of product component life cycles. Design resources as for example tool boxes, test benches, databases, will therefore be developed to help designers, manufacturers, recyclers, remanufacturers, etc., to collaborate and design for better reuse, remanufacturing and recycling while improving assembly/disassembly processes. The increase in product added value (economic, environmental and social) will be assessed throughout the product’s life cycle to help with decision making. The final goal is to encourage product value chain actors to mutually define and adopt the best sustainable product life cycle scenario for the product (or sector) considered.
