Information on Disposal
Disposal is the final act of the system
lifecycle and of the systems engineering process. Once a system
has reached the end of its life through obsolescence or
economic viability, it must be disposed of. Disposal
is the final stage in the lifecycle and disposal activities include transportation, handling, decomposition, and processing.
can be costly and time consuming and disposal
considerations should be taken into account during the design activities
of the Acquisition Phase of the systems engineering process. While
it may not always be obvious, there can be significant
costs associated with disposal, which must ultimately be
borne by the user.
