Abstract [en]

The manufacturing industry has a duty to minimize its environmental impact, and an increasing body of legislation mandates environmental impact evaluations from a life cycle perspective to prevent burden shift. The manufacturing industry is increasing its use of computer-based simulations to optimize production processes. In recent years, several published studies have combined simulations with life cycle assessments (LCAs) to evaluate and minimize the environmental impact of production activities. Still, current knowledge of simulations conducted for LCAs is rather disjointed. This paper accordingly reviews the literature covering simulation-based LCAs of production processes. The results of the review and cross-comparison of papers are structured in terms of seven elements in line with the ISO standard definition of LCA and report the strengths and limitations of the reviewed studies. © 2019, © 2019 The Author(s).

Abstract [en]

The manufacturing industry has a duty to minimize their environmental impact and more and more legislations include environmental impact evaluations from a life cycle perspective to avoid burden shift. Current manufacturing industry increase their use of computer-based simulations for optimizing production processes. In recent years, a number of studies have been published, combining simulations with life cycle assessments (LCA), to evaluate and minimize the environmental impact of production activities, as part of improving the production processes. Still, current knowledge concerning simulations for LCA is rather scattered. Therefore, this paper reviews relevant literature covering simulation based LCA for production development. The results of the review and cross comparison of papers are structured following the 6 categories in line with the ISO standard definition of LCA (goal formulation, scope definition, environmental impact assessment, data quality, level of modelling details, and model validation) and report the strengths and constraints of the reviewed studies.

Abstract [en]

Historically, the manufacturing industry is one of the main contributors to the environmental issues. With conservation of the environment becoming more and more critical for survival, it is of importance for the manufacturing industry to take responsibility for minimizing their productions’ environmental impacts. Life cycle assessment has been widely used in the product’s development phase within the manufacturing industry. However, the environmental impacts that come from various dynamic manufacturing processes are only estimated with large uncertainty. Some studies have suggested that the combination of life cycle assessment and production flow simulation is an appropriate approach to address the environmental impacts from the manufacturing processes. Nevertheless, these studies are often limiting their concerns to the limited life cycle phases or certain environmental impacts. This study proposes a framework regarding how to develop a method for evaluating and identifying improvements that help reduce the life-cycle environmental impacts of complex production processes. In addition, this work employs a simplified case study to demonstrate the proposed framework.
