By repairing and reselling used products, reuse centres aim at creating low-skill jobs while offering low-cost and environmentally beneficial products. However, due to a combination of decreased efficiency of worn-out products and technological progress embodied in new products, lifetime extension of old products is sometimes not the most beneficial(More)
It is explained how 'one-to-many' fasteners can contribute to achieve cost-efficient disassembly. These fasteners use advanced materials or structures as a catalyst for disassembly, allowing multiple assemblies to separate simultaneously after exposure to specific, external triggering conditions. In this paper the emerging techniques in this area are(More)

The expected increase of air traffic by at least 33% by 2015 to 2020 requires more than an evolutionary change from the way air traffic controllers work today in more than an evolutionary manner. One way to do this is to free up individual air traffic controller physical and mental resources. If controllers can apply the increase in available resources to(More)
