 Circular product development is designing a product that has a scope of returning into its life cycle multiple times with a virtue of inflicting minimal harm to the environment, and such a product is also called a circular product. A products degree of circularity is the summation of its affinity towards circularity measured across all the life-cycle stages of that product. In their transformation from conventional to circular product development approaches, global organizations are now looking for specific methods and tools in measuring the circularity of their products. In this lecture, an effective product circularity assessment framework model build upon circularity criteria will be elaborated. This easy to adopt assessment model will help in the identification of hotspots across the life-cycle stages of product and assist the product designers by offering recommendations and guidelines to improve the degree of the circularity of their products.
