Umweltinformatik ’99 - Umweltinformatik zwischen Theorie und Industrieanwendung
Waste management as well as the consumption of raw materials and energy dominate public discussions. Environment-protection and preservation of the resources became important tasks for the producing-industry because of the increasing waste, the deficiency of landfills or the declining of important resources. At the design stage of products, new demands concerning recycling and disassembly have to be taken into consideration. Comprehensive tools are going to be developed to support such a recycling and disassembly friendly design. Performing recycling and disassembly is costly and inefficient these days because of lack of important information about the products. On account of these reasons, information originating in the design phase must be edited in such a way that they can be used at the end-of-life phase. In addition, information from the end-of-life phases of products must be made available for usage at the design stage in order to be able to estimate the effects of design decisions. For these reasons, the development of a data memory system usable for the complete product life cycle is necessary. This paper presents such a system based on databases. Specific algorithms allow the data preparation for the individual product life phases.
