Session Abstract

Laura Ackermann, Salzburg University of Applied Sciences

Prolonging a product’s lifetime is one of the main strategies of a Circular Economy, and strategies to encourage repair and maintenance activities conducted by the consumers are needed. We will present a toolkit that aims to support designers in considering product care strategies during their product development process. Product care includes all strategies that extend the lifetime of a product such as repair, maintenance and protective measures (Ackermann, Mugge, & Schoormans, 2018). Unfortunately, strategies on how to implement product care into product and service design are not well-known. The toolkit will be presented as a conference paper during PLATE 2019, and the workshop will give the participants the opportunity to experience the toolkit themselves.
