Abstract

Active disassembly technology provides the designer a useful unmanned disassembly processes to achieve efficient recycling for products. Currently, many types of smart active fasteners are developed by using shape memory plastics (SMP). This technology has been testing in cell phones and LCD TVs to confirm the concepts. This paper presents an eco-innovative design methodology by using TRIZ method to innovate the new concepts of smart active fasteners for active disassembly at the end-of-life stage of products. The tools of TRIZ, such as contradiction matrix, inventive principles, and substance-field analysis, are chosen in this study to develop this eco-innovative design methodology. Examples are demonstrated to illustrate the capability of proposed methodology.
