Design for Reuse/Recycling Requirements as a Source of Secondary Problems.
Sergei Ikovenko, GEN3Partners, Boston, USA
Secondary problems are often an obstacle to accepting efficient engineering solutions. They either slow down the implementation process of completely make the solutions non-applicable. It makes perfect sense to identify the secondary problems at the design stage to avoid their detrimental consequences during the verification and implementation stages. Requirements for sustainable design and specifically regulations of Design for Recycling/Reuse (DFR)) often serve as constraints that cause a number of secondary problems.
The article elaborates on identifying potential secondary problems from the analysis of the requirements of DFR.
