Lifestyles cycle engineering offers with applied sciences for transferring the from mass creation and mass intake paradigm to closed loop production paradigm, within which required features are supplied for purchasers with the minimal volume of construction. This topic is mentioned from some of the features, similar to existence cycle layout, layout for surroundings, reduce/reuse/recycle, existence cycle overview, and sustainable enterprise models.
Advances in lifestyles Cycle Engineering for Sustainable production companies gathers jointly papers from the 14th CIRP existence Cycle Engineering convention. This convention is the longest working annual assembly within the box, within which papers are offered relating to advancements of cutting edge applied sciences, proposals of latest techniques, and famous case reports.

So in our LCA, the entire lifecycle is taken into account, even if data are missing. This means we will compare what is comparable: if there is a lack of data in one alternative, the comparison cannot be made on that element, but the calculation still can be processed. As the design process go further and the knowledge on the products lifecycle increase, the quality of the environmental evaluation will also increase. 2 Going down at the component level The LCA methodology allows the production of environmental quantitative indicators [4].

This result can be obtained for a lifecycle phase or for the total product. This is mandatory to be able to target the hot spots of the products lifecycle regarding environmental matter. However, we believe in a design context, it is possible to get such result much quicker with a qualitative method like the MECO matrix for example [4]. Moreover, designers manipulate components, and we have shown that, if willing to design for recycling, remanufacturing or reuse, the designer has to get a feedback on the components performance relating to a given EoL scenario.

Then, we described situations of processes. For example, Table 2 shows the situation of exchange upgrading of PCBs. We assumed that a user brings the product to the shop, and pays the upgrade fee of 30,000 yen to the PC manufacturer. In the next step, this scenario was evaluated by using the idea of Life Cycle Simulation [5]. Here, we assumed that cost of manufacturing process, sales price, and upgrade fee of PCB, CPU and manufacturers' cost of PCB, CPU are set as 100,000 yen, 150,000 yen, 30,000 yen, 20,000 yen, 20,000 yen and 10,000 yen, respectively, in order to assess manufacturer’s profit.
