BS 8887-1:2006

Design for manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE). General concepts, process and requirements

Status : Confirmed, Current, Superseded   Published : October 2006 Replaced By : BS ISO 8887-1:2017



BS 8887 is appropriate to all types of manufacture and has the primary purpose of identifying and specifying the use of ISO Standards relevant to the design for manufacture. It is structured to provide the designer with a framework for the selection, preparation and presentation of appropriate documentation, so that the design concept can be transferred into and beyond the manufacturing environment.

BS 8887-1:2006 specifies the requirements for the preparation, content and structure of design output and the preparation of related technical product documentation for the manufacture, assembly, disassembly and end-of-life processing (MADE) of products.

It identifies and describes methodologies and conventions appropriate to the preparation of documentation, in whatever form, intended to transfer a design concept to manufacture, including the determination of required accuracy and tolerances for verification purposes. It also provides guidance on the application of principles and techniques to assist the designer in the preparation of unambiguous instructions, commensurate with the perceived complexity, role and life of the intended product.

In addressing end-of-life requirements, BS 8887-1:2006 extends beyond specification for the manufacture and assembly of products to incorporate recommendations on how best to incorporate into the documentation, guidance on the ultimate reuse, recovery, recycling and disposal of the components and materials used.
