life cycle assessment; Life Cycle Design; Product Development Process; Early Stage of Development

Life cycle assessment is becoming increasingly important for industry. Like the economic impact the ecological impact is mainly determined in the early stage of development. The challenge in this context is that the impact is difficult to predict, if the product has not been completely designed yet and if the production processes are not known. For the economic impact many empirical formulas exist, whereas for the ecological impact such formulas are still missing. Therefore, an easy to use life cycle impact assessment tool has been developed which supports the developer during all stages of development.
