Analysis and Assessment of Automobiles With Regard to the Requirements of Design for Recycling 2001-01-3747

At the practical example it is shown how and with which methods and tools the research group Forgis treats the subject “Design for Recycling” by order of the automobile and suppliers' industry.
An analysis of the actual state takes place by vehicle dismantling (serial of prototypes). As a result from these data, a software-based model of the vehicle is generated, which provides a part-orientated description of the vehicle concerning the criteria of design for recycling. This description implies dismantling reports for the complete vehicle and its modules and a positiv/negativ list for its components.
By means of this evaluation, the problems emerging in the design-phase are pointed out, concerning the implementation of legal and design-for-recycling requirements into the design of vehicle and components.
By means of practical training, there is a sensitization of product responsibles for optimization potentials.
By these measures and by specially developed software applications, existing product-information can be checked already in the early design-phase concerning the criteria of design for recycling. Thereby possible modifications can be realized already before the serial production starts.
