Module Design Based on Life Cycle Design
To achieve sustainable development, conserve energy and reduce emission are the themes of modern society. Life Cycle Design is an important design philosophy while Modular Design is one of the modern design ways which produced in the economic development. This paper presents a more perfect Modular Design based on Life Cycle Design. This paper will be developed in three parts: the first part introduces the basic concepts of the Life Cycle Design, Modular Design and the relationship between them; the second analyses the necessity of Modular Design in all stages of the product life cycle and the matter to be attended to; and third presents the method and steps of the Modular Design based on the Life Cycle Design and takes the design of range hood as an example in order to explain it.
