Key findings and implications of the study

Limitations and future research directions

 1. Design and Planned Obsolescence.
Theories and Approaches for Designing Enabling Technologies

 To study the premature ageing of
product technologies and to face the issues of built in obsolesce of devices
in the era of connected world.

 What is premature Obsolescence
of Technology & what is difference in between quality Obsolescence &
desire Obsolescence

 Smaller number of works is considered
using mixed method

 1820, conducted with 26 domains

consumer behavior
showed that people want a well functioning and up to date product that meets
their changing needs, gradually upgrading of product occurs via product
Obsolescence

 Research can be diversified to various
other categories of product including fast moving consumer goods to consumer
durables.

 2. THE
CULTURE OF PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE IN TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES

 to gain knowledge and understanding of
the theory behind obsolescence; to try to understand the broadness of the
topic and how it can be extended to work well with a more contemporary
approach to consumerism

 what psychological methods are adopted
to influence consumers to adapt to the model of obsolescence, and what are
the side-effects of obsolescence to the environment

 More focus on electronic durables and
technology companies which focuses on innovation

 NA

 Consumers are well aware of this power
and are becoming the manipulators and the enforcers of ideas to aid and guide
companies in the right direction.

 Work was more focused on technology
and innovation driven company and products which could have a diversified
view for getting better idea of planned obsolence

 3. Consumption, planned
obsolescence and waste

 focus on obsolescence
highlights that which is devalued, wasted, destroyed

 What needs should be satisfied
via the consumption of commodities

 More focus on capitalism and consumer
driven market forces.

 NA

 Transformation has continued as
waste has changed from unproductive land, to that which is left over from the
productive working of materials, to an unwanted by-product of industrial
production, through to its increasing contemporary manifestation as a
potential raw material to be revalorized in new circuits of production

 Manufacturing sectors aspect should
also be taken to have an biased view over the obsolence

 4. Consumers’ reactions to
product obsolescence in emerging markets: the case of Brazil

 Emerging economies, like
Brazil, that host a burgeoning middle class with long-delayed consumer
aspirations

 What is Waste management policy
and regulation, what little attention has been directed to stimulating a more
responsible approach to products’ lifespan or to the availability of
cost-effective replacement parts or product-repair facilities

 The research has not given a brief
about various other product categories what shows high obsolence

 Various statistical data has been
taken and compared as per categories related to product

 Brazilians  pay marginal attention to product
durability and the means by which to maximize product lifespan,
 
Brazilians
seldom connect issues of product durability to other sustainability
aspirations

 The study covers the emerging market
as it could have been done on other markets also.

 5 Planned Obsolescence and
Sustainability

 The impact of the short life
cycle of the current products on sustainability, and the repercussion this
can cause on the necessity of supplying goods to a human population with a
growth speed never seen before.

 To study the necessity of
changing the paradigm of planned obsolescence to one of long-lasting products
and present some suggestions on how to keep them updated under so many
changes and innovation to which the products are subject in the present days.
