The life-cycle of personal computers (PCs) has become shorter in recent years. PC companies are undertaking more pressure to improve the recyclability performance of their new designed PC products. The concept of Design For Environment (DFE) has been adopted by many PC companies to assist their designers to consider the environmental performance of their new PC generation at the early stage of designing. In order to support the requirement of PC companies, this paper develops an environmental evaluation/ design support (E/D) tool for PC. The proposed E/D tool is capable of evaluating the new designed PC in terms of environmental sustainability, i.e., material selection, recyclability evaluation, and disassemblability analyses.
