Planned Obsolescence (Artificial Product Lifespan)
 
09:05
Planned obsolescence is the intentional design of a product to have an artificially limited lifespan. The first major example of this could be seen in the formation of the Phoebus Cartel in 1924 (https://www.simplelighting.co.uk/knowledge-hub/history-pre-war-lightbulb-manufacture/). The cartel was made up of a number of major manufacturers including Osram, Philips, and General Electric. They’re goal was simple – reduce the lifespan of electric bulbs to 1000 hours in order to maximise profits. This forced consumers to have to buy new light bulbs regularly. Of course, the public were not informed of this agreement. Style Obsolescence The intentional change of the style of a product can be used to create the illusion that the new product is better than the previous one. Clothing and accessories are a common example of this. One year, small sunglasses are considered fashionable, then the very next year, larger ones are all the rage. Difficult to Repair Some companies intentionally make it hard to repair their device. Apple’s cash cow, the iPhone, is notoriously hard to repair. This causes an artificial scarcity (https://youtu.be/JFieXFWotIc) of skilled technicians which has the effect of increasing maintenance costs for obsolete phones. Low Durability Some products are designed with low-quality parts in mind, especially in key areas. Manufacturers know that making critical components from cheap plastics or metals will result in a significant reduction in lifespan. Toy manufacturers are infamous for this. Sure, their toys look great on the outside, but they often contain cheap plastic cogs in vital locations. What happens when a four-year-old’s motorised train stops working? “Dad! I want a new one!” Systematic Obsolescence Many computer software and hardware companies are guilty of planned systematic obsolescence where they make their software or hardware incompatible, or difficult to use with future operating systems. Just last night I was trying to get my old scanner to work on my new Windows 10 laptop. It took me about three hours to work out a fix, and I’ve worked in IT. The average person would have given up and just bought a new scanner. The scanner is in good condition, so there is no physical reason to throw it away, however the manufacturers don’t want me to use the same scanner for 20 years, do they now? Programmed Obsolescence Some devices have a pre-programmed lifespan. They do not rely on some random part to fail like a toy with a cheap cog inside, but instead are designed to fail on a particular date, or after a certain number of uses. Hewlett Packard had to go to court over designing some of their inkjet printers and cartridges to automatically shut down on a particular expiration date, even though ink remained (http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2010/11/hp-inkjet-printer-lawsuit-reaches-5-million-settlement/index.htm). Users were being forced to go out and buy costly ink cartridges. The case was settled for about $5 million, but each plaintiff could only receive a maximum of $6. Wow, thanks Hewlett Packard. Advantages The manufacturers and producers benefit the most from planned obsolescence. By creating items that need to be replaced often, they can ensure demand. One could also argue that this in turn creates more jobs. Disadvantages Continually replacing items rather than repairing them can cause a lot of waste and pollution, which has a negative impact on the environment. Planned obsolescence is inefficient. It’s wasting workers’ time and customers’ money. If customers work out that a company is intentionally making goods that break down, they might to turn to a company that sells more durable goods. Solution As long as we live in a capitalist economy, there will always be planned obsolescence. And there lies the problem. As long as companies’ number one goal is to make money, we will forever be victim to buying junk that won’t last more than a few years. Ideally, we would live in a society where money is no longer required, or no longer useful. Companies would take pride in making long-life, durable, good quality machines that function well. Of course they would! They wouldn’t want to waste hundreds of man-hours fixing crappy devices. If you haven’t already seen it, go to Resource Based Economy (https://youtu.be/D2a80qCYf7A) and watch the video The Choice is Ours by Jacque Fresco (https://youtu.be/Yb5ivvcTvRQ). It outlines a possible society where people focus on quality and durability rather than money and profits. I think we will get there eventually. It’ll just take time. So in the meantime, we have to find a way to not keep buying junk that breaks down all the time, or every year buying a slightly different model just to keep up with the Joneses.

The Lightbulb Conspiracy - Planned Obsolescence
 
52:50
Did you know that the lifetime of light bulbs have been reduced on purpose to just 1000 hours? Or that your printer may 'break' after a predefined number of printed pages determined by an electronic counter? Or that Apple batteries lasted only 18 months which meant that you had to throw away your iPods and buy another? What about Dupont stockings that were strong enough to tow a car, before they went back to design a stocking that would wear out more quickly! Have you ever heard the phrase '...They don't make them like they used to' or have you ever wondered why an item fails as soon as the warranty expires or maybe just finished making payments on your car when the mechanic tells you it's time to buy a new one as it's beyond economical repair. They say we live in a 'thow-away' society, just look at what turns up in Ghana labelled as '2nd-hand-goods' to get around dumping regulations. ...oh, and see if you can guess how long a lightbulb in a Californian fire-station has been burning for, 1 year? ...5 years? ...10 years? ...watch and see! This documentary from Norway now released under creative commons licensing was originally called 'The Pyramid of Waste - The lightbulb conspiracy' sheds some light (sorry!) on the designed lifespan of products. ..I just hope they don't have an equivalent program for people ...or do they? -i'll leave that one for the conspiracy theorists.

Planned Obsolescence by BOSE - Lifespan-limiting design

The video contains complaints about early cable disintegration and tearing collected from twitter. The choice of such a material indicates intent of planned-obsolescence by the company. This is a Review of Bose In ear headphones Read more : http://contemporarycoincidence.blogspot.com/2015/06/bose-in-ear-headphones-have-bad-cords.html Though the sound reproduction and comfort is slightly better than others, these headphones do not last. Considering the relatively high cost the company seems to be deceiving its customers with a false promise of quality. Planned obsolescence tends to work best when a producer has at least an oligopoly. Before introducing a planned obsolescence, the producer has to know that the consumer is at least somewhat likely to buy a replacement from them. In these cases of planned obsolescence, there is an information asymmetry between the producer – who knows how long the product was designed to last – and the consumer, who does not.

SUBSCRIBE NOW FOR MORE CONTAGIOUSLY INSPIRING STORIES: http://bit.ly/BrightVibesSubscribe Time to dump Products designed to fail a century ago light bulbs lasted 2,500 hours. Today they only last 1,000 hours. How is this all possible? Because in the 1920s manufacturers wanted to sell more light bulbs... They simply redesigned them to break much sooner There's a term for this: "planned obsolescence". Products designed to have an unnecessarily short life span in order to keep selling new ones. For example by incorporating "expiration dates", using irreplaceable batteries, frequently changing in design, unavailability or highly overpricing of spare parts etc It is said to be good for the economy, because it keeps us buying new stuff all the time. But this dated concept leads to unnecessary purchases, tremendous waste and depletion of natural resources. Fortunately a change is a-coming as more and more countries implement laws prohibiting planned obsolescence. The european union now calls for a ban on products with inbuilt defaults, and demands a guaranteed minimum of time a product will last. France now has a law protecting consumers with a minimum lifespan of electronic items and a minimum 3 or 5 year guarantee. These laws not only protect consumers, they protect our planet as well. Also, increasingly companies are switching to more 'circular economy' based solutions meaning they aim to maintain the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible, while minimising the generation of waste.

Top Products Designed to Fail. Planned Obsolescence
 
07:20
Top Products Designed to Fail. Planned Obsolescence We are currently living in a decade where technologies, especially smart objects and Internet-based devices, are increasingly used in different contexts of our life and every day new gadgets and tools are invented that make us even more connected. In 2016 there were as many as 6.4 billion Internet of things-based objects in use worldwide and by 2020 they will be increasing to 20.8 billion. However, it is also well-known that producers are designing objects with a verifiable limited useful life. This is a common practice among different international companies and this design strategy is called Planned Obsolescence. In other words, they don’t make them to last! Prezi Planned Obsolescence can be dated back to the early Twentieth century with the example of the light bulb producers and their famous “Phoebus Cartel” where different light bulb producers were controlling the manufacture and sales of their products with limited durability of the light bulbs in order to increase the demand for new light bulbs and so increase sales. Well, money, money, money, Hey? But, have you seen this light bulb that it is constantly lighting for 115 years? They surely don’t make them as they used to. Other more recent examples are the battery packs of modern-day smartphones. Many of them are not easily removable and this leads to qualitative obsolescence or economical obsolescence when the battery degrades because the replacement of the battery is very costly and not necessarily all consumers can afford to replace them. Planned Obsolescence, or Built-in Obsolescence, according to the Collins English Dictionary, is the policy of deliberately limiting the life of a product in order to encourage the purchaser to replace it. In other words, people, at least in the developed world, are slaves to consumerism and the idea of billions of connected devices becoming obsolescent every year is alarming.

Obsolescence is a crime
 
01:10
Planned obsolescence is the design and manufacture of products that are deliberately intended to have a limited useful life. The result is that you are forced into an everlasting cycle of replacing, repurchasing and repeating. For 50 years we have stood by our common sense approach of living better, with less, that lasts longer. This single-minded, avowedly long-term, philosophy takes on physical form as our 606 Universal Shelving System -- a product that is a flexible and faithful servant in the face of a turbulent world, one that minimises its inevitable impact on the world's environment and resources by being useful for as long as possible.

...Planned Obsolescence...
 
03:00
Exploring Solutions to Planned Obsolescence with a Rubik's Cube Analogy! It's hip to be square. Planned obsolescence broadly refers to the limited lifespan of commodity goods. It entails manufacturing techniques, materials, and marketing strategies that manufacturers and competitive industries use to ensure consumers continuously upgrade and/or replace products. This is achieved via design techniques that cause products to fail or require replacement parts or upgrades, as well as through mass-marketing. Although industries gain financially from planned obsolescence practices as consumers enjoy new commodities, the larger picture reveals significant environmental consequences. (There's also notable social consequences. For example, a lot of our trash ends up in the Global South!) Although planned obsolescence promotes technological and design innovations, the cycle of new purchases and disposals can be viewed as bolstering unnecessary and excessive waste. Via perceived obsolescence, which is in part stimulated by marketing industries, importance is placed on the need to be "fashionable" while having new, "high quality" items. Participating in fashion trends and fads is generally not regarded as having significant environmental implications. This may speak of how consumers are largely unaware of the environmental damage brought about by the Materials Economy and as a result of their consumption habits. Thanks for reading/viewing!

From planned obsolescence  to sustainability

Presented as part of a talk entitled 'Rethink Waste: Treating Waste as a Resource' at the 'Sustainable Industry Forum 2013: Treating Waste as a Resource' workshop, hosted by the European Commission's DG Enterprise and Industry on 27 May 2013 in Brussels. http://www.eurometaux.org/events/eventregistration/tabid/67/ctl/viewdetail/mid/428/itemid/2616/d/20130527/Sustainable-Industry-Forum-2013-%22Treating-Waste-as-a-Resource%22.aspx Built-in obsolescence in industrial design is a policy of planning or designing a product with a limited useful life, so it will become obsolete, that is, unfashionable or no longer functional after a certain period of time. Planned obsolescence has potential benefits for a producer because to obtain continuing use of the product the consumer is under pressure to purchase again, whether from the same manufacturer (a replacement part or a newer model), or from a competitor which might also rely on planned obsolescence. Planned obsolescence can harm the environment, due to more pollution caused by more resource extraction and by more manufacturing of products, as well as more waste generation.

Will Planned Obsolescence Kill Silicon Valley? - Rob Coneybeer
 
13:44
From Solid Conference 2015: In Detroit’s heyday, automotive manufacturers built generations of vehicles with intentionally limited lifespans to encourage new vehicle purchases on a regular basis. In today’s world of connected hardware, leading vendors like Apple are pursuing similar strategies based on rapid obsolescence. What’s different this time is the role of Moore’s Law and software – rapid innovations in faster wireless protocols, higher power processors, lower power budgets and better battery lives are forcing consumers, designers and businesses to view hardware as a service rather than merely as products. However, unlike the decisions that eventually led to Detroit’s downfall, planned obsolescence is a good thing for both consumers and hardware vendors alike. This talk will explore how designers can create products that ease rapid transitions from generation to generation of product, and how businesses can benefit from planned obsolesence while still delighting their customers. About Rob Coneybeer (Shasta Ventures): Rob Coneybeer is a veteran venture capitalist who approaches start-up investing from a product perspective. At Shasta Ventures, the Sand Hill Road firm he co-founded in 2004, Rob focuses on hardware and mobile startups. Rob is particularly interested in startups that have discovered creative new approaches to connecting the “real world” to the internet, whether via smart phones, low-cost sensors, or other innovative, new devices. Rob started his career working in the Astro Space division of Martin Marietta, where he helped build the first EchoStar spacecraft. Some of Rob’s notable investments include smart-thermostat company Nest; Relay Rides, the leading peer-to-peer carsharing marketplace; and Mocana, which provides security for smart devices.

The rationale behind the strategy is to generate long-term sales volume by reducing the time between repeat purchases, (referred to as shortening the replacement cycle). Firms that pursue this strategy believe that the additional sales revenue it creates more than offsets the additional costs of research and development and opportunity costs of existing product line cannibalization. The rewards are by no means certain: in a competitive industry, this can be a risky strategy because consumers may decide to buy from competitors. This video is targeted to blind users.

What is PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE? What does PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE mean? Planned obsolescence or built-in obsolescence in industrial design and economics is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so it will become obsolete, that is, unfashionable or no longer functional after a certain period of time. The rationale behind the strategy is to generate long-term sales volume by reducing the time between repeat purchases (referred to as "shortening the replacement cycle"). Producers that pursue this strategy believe that the additional sales revenue it creates more than offsets the additional costs of research and development and opportunity costs of existing product line cannibalization. In a competitive industry, this is a risky strategy because when consumers catch on to this, they may decide to buy from competitors instead. Planned obsolescence tends to work best when a producer has at least an oligopoly.

In these cases of planned obsolescence, there is an information asymmetry between the producer – who knows how long the product was designed to last – and the consumer, who does not. When a market becomes more competitive, product lifespans tend to increase. For example, when Japanese vehicles with longer lifespans entered the American market in the 1960s and 1970s, American carmakers were forced to respond by building more durable products.

How Do I Identify Obsolescence?
 
04:58
In our last tutorial, "What's Obsolescence?", we introduced the concepts of functional and external obsolescence. Functional obsolescence, being defined as the loss in value due to the inability to perform adequately, or in the manner that the property did when it was created. The issue is internal to the property. And external obsolescence being defined as the loss in value due to impairment in utility caused by factors external to the property. The responsibility of identifying, quantifying and reporting obsolescence falls on the taxpayer. If there is going to be a reduction in your property tax assessment and the subsequent property tax bill due to obsolescence, obsolescence must first be identified. So how does one identify obsolescence? In order to identify obsolescence, we need to identify the causes of obsolescence. Causes of functional obsolescence generally revolve around a change in technology or a design change. Let's take a manufacturer for example. When a production plant is built it is usually built with the latest and greatest design. Over time new and better ways to design are introduced, making newer plants faster and more efficient. The original plant experiences functional obsolescence. It has become inadequate. This inadequacy may be throughout the plant or only within sections of it. The reverse of inadequacy can also occur. It's called "super adequacy". Super adequacy reflects building more design into a property than the market really cares about. We see this sometimes with corporate headquarters built to make a statement. It's important to point out that inadequacy and super adequacy are measured by the marketplace, through the eyes of a potential purchaser of the property. All things considered equal, a purchaser would pay less for a property that exhibits obsolescence when compared to one that does not. Why pay as much for a property exhibiting inadequacy in technology or design? Likewise, a purchaser will not pay as much for a super adequate facility. Why buy the Taj Mahal when a simple cemetery plot will do? Causes of external obsolescence include issues beyond the control of the taxpayer, such as government restrictions. The value of asbestos making plants and equipment dropped dramatically in 1978 when the U.S. government banned asbestos. An unfavorable location is another cause of external obsolescence. A company builds a beautiful office in a neighborhood. Over time the neighborhood decline significantly to the point that it is undesirable to have an office there. While the office may still be beautiful, an investor will consider it less valuable because of the neighborhood. Product supply and demand is another cause of external obsolescence. A sharp decline in demand for a product may cause the equipment and facilities producing that product to drop in value. For example, we worked with a chemical manufacturer who was experiencing supply and demand issues. Their Chinese competitors were selling the same product in the U.S. at a price lower than the manufacturer's cost to product the same product. Their production facility, which cost millions to build just a few years earlier, had greatly diminished in value. What investor wants to pay for a plant that will cost him money to operate? That's external obsolescence. Functional and external obsolescence can occur in almost any type of equipment or building. Identifying obsolescence starts by asking questions. Questions like, • Has technology negatively impacted my plant or equipment? • What design changes have occurred in my industry? • Are there bottle-necks in my process, causing it to be in adequate? • Do I have inactive equipment? • Why is it inactive? • Did we overbuild? • Is our operation profitable? If not, why? By looking at the causes you'll be able to identify obsolescence, which is the first step. Quantifying obsolescence is another matter - one that will be covered in our next tutorial.

World's Longest Running Light Bulb (Planned obsolescence)
 
02:15
Planned obsolescence or built-in obsolescence in industrial design is a policy of deliberately planning or designing a product with a limited useful life, so it will become obsolete or nonfunctional after a certain period of time.Planned obsolescence has potential benefits for a producer because to obtain continuing use of the product the consumer is under pressure to purchase again, whether from the same manufacturer (a replacement part or a newer model), or from a competitor which might also rely on planned obsolescence.

Planned Obsolescence with The People in my Living Room
 
08:06
A FUNNY and informative video: The People discuss aspects of planned obsolescence. Planned obsolescence or built-in obsolescence in industrial design is where a company designs products to become non-functional or unfashionable after a limited period of time. Planned obsolescence occurs primarily in electronics, video games, fashion, automobiles, and technology. It also occurs on some level in many other industries. Companies use this particular strategy in order to create a need for newer products more quickly, thereby increasing sales revenue. “That’s how they get you.” ~Wes McGillicutty These methods tend to work best when a company has a monopoly, or more commonly an oligopoly of a particular product. This way when a consumer plans to replace or upgrade, they return to the same brand to make their purchase. “I think it’s fawked!” ~Johann Stone Of course the most famous example of planned obsolescence is of the Light Bulb conspiracy prompted by a light bulb in Livermore, CA that has burned since 1901. Other examples of items that show planned ob include ink cartridges, mp3 players, and a big one not mentioned is college text books which are quickly outdated and very expensive. Lightbulb is the main product thought of when it comes to this. And of course the all famous propagator of planned obsolescence: Apple. Apple is the biggest. For now...

Avoid the Chaos of Component Obsolescence
 
01:31
Engineers who design in components to systems with long approval cycles and even longer product use life, such as automobiles, aircraft, and medical devices, find themselves lacking the parts needed to build their products. As attention is diverted to the “new and improved” products, legacy technology is relegated to the back burner. Because it is less profitable, it becomes obsolete. Even less-sophisticated products become victims to this chaos. Shortages, Part Change and End Of Life Notifications all impact the bottom line. SiliconExpert offers a SaaS solution that provides the readily available, sophisticated, relevant, and up-to-the-minute data that buyers need in order to remove risk from their supply chain.
Re-Source: "Planned Obsolescence"
 
02:44
Fed up with durable goods that just stop working? Me too. Want to "just throw them away and get a new one"? Well THAT thinking needs to change. Planned obsolescence is part of of our 'consumerist' society's business model, but a better plan is 'product stewardship.' What if manufacturers took responsibility for products at the end of their life? What if they took them back, fixed them, reused the "still-good" parts, and redesigned the "break-too-easy" parts? What if we leased instead of owned? So planned durability was part of the design, and we always had an item that worked... What if?ion
