SIMULATION OF PRODUCTS LIFE CYCLE: METHODOLOGICAL BASIS AND ANALYSIS MODELS

SIMULATION OF PRODUCTS LIFE CYCLE: METHODOLOGICAL BASIS AND ANALYSIS MODELS

Abstract

The aim of this work consists of developing a methodological basis and the models for analysis, to allow the simulation of products life cycle at the design stage. The direct link between design choices and life cycle performances is achieved using a model of the product, which allows to simulate its behavior in relation to phenomena of materials deterioration. Applying the simulation method, it’s possible to associate each set of design choices under examination with a broad spectrum of information: durability and criticality of components and the system; possible faults and the consequent servicing costs; residual life of components and their possible reuse at the end of life; environmental impact of the whole life cycle.

Keywords: life-cycle design, advanced FMEA, useful life, recovery
