Abstract

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016. There has been a trend of increasing levels of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment over the last few decades as the possibility for accessing repair of appliances has declined. Reducing prices of appliances has also generated a culture where the disposal and replacement with new appliances is the quicker and cheaper option, compared with repair. A number of key areas have been identified as important in helping to increase the number of appliances which may feasibly be repaired in the future. Of these, two key areas encompass the automation of repair of appliances, and the information requirements in order to achieve this. Within this paper, a demonstrator will be described which provides a step towards illustrating the potential of product intelligence and semi-automated repair.
