International Journal of Product Development (IJPD), Vol. 3, No. 1, 2006

Abstract: This paper presents work in terms of introducing a concept called Sustainability and Evolution Assessment (SEA) scheme, which is a step forward from conventional diagnostic methods. SEA is an improved method, which implements not only diagnostic features but also prognostic measures. SEA attempts on-line recording of life-cycle information from the technical processes and the components. The recorded data can be used to analyse the environmental impact during run-time for the reuse, recycle, remanufacture and especially for the design of next generation engineering systems.
