A product's lifecycle can be described explicitly as a lifecycle scenario, and the product should be designed to realize a scenario that minimizes its environmental load over the entire product lifecycle. This paper proposes a method of modular design that links the lifecycle scenario to appropriate product architecture by modularizing components that are suitable for the same life cycle options such as recycling, maintenance, reuse and upgrade. We also propose an index for evaluating and comparing efficiency in resource circulation for modular products derived from various life cycle scenarios.
