Although manufacturing companies increasingly acknowledge the environmental impacts of their activities disregarding where in the supply chain these occur, a factory perspective is still predominant within the environmental management practices of organizations. The adoption of a life cycle perspective in the Manufacturing industry is essential to develop consistent strategies that leads to decrease environmental impacts of product systems. In this paper we present a methodology to implement technically a continuous LCA at the manufacturing shop-floor. The concept is further illustrated with a research scale production line.
