Our set of methods for Life Cycle Management 

In the “Life Cycle Management“ topic area, the impacts of all phases of the product life cycle, from material production to recycling, are considered. Using methods such as “Life Cycle Assessment“ and “Life Cycle Costing“, technical, economic and environmental analyses on products and systems are carried out. Security of supply and social aspects are also considered. Furthermore, “Integrated Computational Life Cycle Engineering“ enables a highly automated computer-aided evaluation of design options – e.g. in the product creation process or in factory planning.

A holistic approach to sustainable solutions

Due to the holistic approach of life cycle management, new products can be evaluated in the early development phases. In this way, technological, economic, ecological and social opportunities and risks can be identified and comprehensively compared at an early stage. Whether in the selection of your suppliers, in product development or in production design – together we will find solutions for your demands in the context of sustainability. Contact us!
