Design & product specification

Design management is an area that is often overlooked; this can lead to waste and missed opportunities.

The BS 8887 series address designing for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE). This can help reduce the environmental impact of your product, or help you to make a valuable near-new product from and old one.

The BS 7000 series of standards addresses the issues surrounding design management from initial outset of the design of a product through to the end of its lifecycle and when it becomes obsolescent.

BS 8888 provides the definitive set of requirements for technical product specifications

The standards cover a range of industry sectors including construction, manufacturing and the service industry.
