Observing the public discussion on environmental issues, it becomes evident that environmentally clean products and processes will represent a competitive factor of the strategic impact to producing companies. However up until now it has riot been clear how to model the flow of materials over a product's life-cycle in order to get relevant environmental information and data. As an approach to this topic, the Fraunhofer-Institute IAO for Industrial Engineering in Germany has determined the first steps towards organisational and informational measures concerning an integrated, environmentally oriented Production Management-System (EPMS). The aim is to define an underlying unified material-flow-model to support the environmental orientation of all companies' departments.
