Knowledge and information is quickly becoming the competitive asset. Every day we’re manufacturing more and more data; Josef Zibung and Kristin Radlmayr explain what they mean by information recycling – making sure that the intellectual material attached to recycled components doesn’t get lost – and how embedding this brain material in a semantic information model can save time and money. 
  1. When we speak about product lifecycle, it’s absolutely normal today that raw material is recycled in the product lifecycle. More and more the industry we observe that the industry tries to recycle complete components of products: not only the raw material, but recycle whole components. And add innovation to these components – and from the combination of these components, making new products.
  2. The same way as components can be recycled, the information linked to those components needs also to be recycled. This information generally is not so easy to create – it’s a big work, it’s more expensive than raw material, in general. It’s our brain material. And recycling this type of information is a very good asset for all industry companies.
