The thesis „ simple separating - The separating in design“ is about the disassembly of electronical products. The work is divided into three parts: Research, development of the tool, as well as the review of five product concepts.

To design ecological products, the designer has to estimate the expected lifespan. In this connection the design tool intervenes. Products must be classificated into short-, medium-, or long-lasting. The tool offers categories like connection, design, material, human being and service and helps the designer to define separation for his product concept.
