Design for Durability and Upgradeability
BBF products shall be designed for Durability and Upgradeability.
The design and manufacture of durable products start with the specification of quality materials. Bush Industries will carefully select suppliers of raw materials and components and use a pre-certification process for the supplier and their products. Purchased materials and components will be tested to published standards either on a per shipment basis or quarterly depending on the material/component.
Materials and components specified during the design phase will be chosen to ensure a long service life. Bush/BBF offers either a 10 year or a Limited Life Time warranty on its products which communicates its durability to the customer. Products will be designed to perform through the warranty period.
To ensure the design of durable products BBF products will be subject to and required to pass applicable industry standard ANSI/BIFMA performance standards. BIFMA, along with ANSI, develops, maintains, and publishes safety and performance standards for office furniture products. Products will be retested at prescribed intervals to ensure ongoing quality and durability.
Products will be designed to allow reuse and reconfiguration thereby extending their flexibility and useful life. To maximize ease of specification and reuse products will be designed as non-handed as much as possible. That is, to design products so they can be used in both left and right configurations. This also reduces inventory and replacement part requirements.
Products that are assembled into larger configurations will use simple tools, primarily a Philips screwdriver. Large configurations can disassembled easily for moving or reconfiguration.
Products will be designed to allow for the replacement of damaged or worn parts. A customer service department is available to assist customers and a parts inventory is maintained to quickly respond to those needs. Products and parts will be standardized whenever possible. This reduces the parts inventory and improves the efficiency of manufacture. Replacement of parts is primarily accomplished
