Information is crucial to establishing a circular economy. For example, the design engineer must access information regarding recycling processes. Other stakeholders need information on the former use and design to treat the product according to the intended purpose within a circular economy. This article will describe the impact on design decisions and their effects on the circular economy. It will further describe how to extract and provide data and information from the design process and use phase of the product, finally transfer this into knowledge provided for other stakeholders. The approach is illustrated using a product example and information flow within the system and how to generate valuable knowledge out of the whole product lifetime phase.
