Title

Function Degradation and Reliability Analysis Using Markov Chain for Reuse Strategies of Product Families

Abstract

Reuse is one of the most end-of-life strategies for sustainable design. This paper presents a methodology to plan reuse strategies of common modules in a product family using the concepts of function requirement, cost and life time. Markov chain model is employed to predict function degradation and reliability. A utility model is used to evaluate the preference between used modules and new modules. An example of cascading-requirement product family illustrates the main ideas of our work.
