Product life cycle information acquisition and management for consumer products
An output from EU Framework funded Environmental Lifecycle Information Management and Acquisition (ELIMA) collaborative research project (GRD2-2000-30097). ELIMA resulted from “Life Cycle Data Acquisition Methods and Devices for Consumer Products and Machines (Whitebox)”. EPSRC Design for Whole Life Cycle Programme, Grant GR/L74392 (Assessed as top-rated Alpha 5 for research outcome and excellent management and use of resources). Prototype product service systems were piloted in multi-country field trials (Indesit/Hotpoint refrigeration products - firstname.lastname@example.org) and SONY PlayStation consoles -email@example.com), designed and implemented with the framework and tools described. Partners also included Motorola, Cybernetix, SAT and Sheffield Hallam. Total project value was €3.9M.
