Description Reflecting upon the life cycle of products and their components is important in understanding how decisions at the design level impact on people, resources, sustainable goals and how these contribute towards sustainability-oriented local and global value chains. This unit focuses on sustainable decision-making at the design level. It challenges and motivates students towards using sustainability principles to promote good Design for Disassembly (DfD) practices with linkages to material durability, and material reuse. Through a project-based approach, students will appraise manufacturing considerations for product design applying in succession Design for Manufacturing, Assembly and Disassembly (DfM, DfA, DfD) principles to their products and reflect on product lifecycle management best practice.

Level Undergraduate Level 2 subject
The ability to communicate a design proposal using 2D or 3D computer software with annotations, and application of Australian Standards AS 1100 is desirable.
- Conduct a product review and re-design based on principles on DfM, DfA and DfD focusing on durability in regard for fit-for-purpose, and circular economy principles
- Improve sustainable outcomes by applying Design for Manufacturing, Assembly and Disassembly techniques and approaches
- Employ design methods that enhance the ease of manufacturing component assemblies and ease of disassembly
- Effect positive sustainable change in design, manufacture, and end-of-life-cycle use of components supporting a sustainable systems approach
