Electronic products are so complex and fast evolving that specific life cycle analysis (LCA) during the product development are still not feasible. One successful alternative is a modular evaluation concept. The spectrum of companies in electronics ? from the small, specialized company where one person handles all environmental affairs to the global players with their own environmental research departments ? requires a flexible mixture of basic research and reliable data generation, contract R&D, and the transfer of results and methods into management workflows. Several electronic systems mainly from information and communications products have been assessed with a different number of modules, depending on the expected or necessary width and depth of results. For all examples optimization strategies and specific improvements will be shown.
