Abstract

During the planning phase of the build up or overhaul of factories a large share of the life cycle spanning impact of such production facilities is determined. Furthermore it is very hard to evaluate the impact of possible measures for improvement, resulting Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and environmental impacts of factory systems. Against this background this paper presents an integrated life cycle analysis approach for a streamlined economical and environmental life cycle assessment of factory systems. The approach gets applied while using two interacting tools for a) energy efficiency evaluation of pneumatic systems and b) life cycle evaluation of factory systems.
