Abstract
Since years you can observe a rising pollution of environment and a continual reduction of natural resources. The consequences of these two problems were increasing prices for raw materials and rising sanatation costs. Additionally the legislature has reacted with a number of laws and directives. For a producing enterprise this means that next to economical and technical aspects meanwhile ecological aspects have to be considered in product and production planning. In this connection the selection of materials and technologies is of special importance. Due to the systematic recording and evaluation of appropriate requirements of ressources, decisions concerning the selection of material and technology can be supported with a product-related and comprehensive balance in kind. The EDV-prototype CALA (Computer Aided Lifecycle Analysis) was developed in order to reduce the effort of a balance in kind to a minimum. CALA supports the user in capturing data and data processing through a dialog ue-oriented display mask and through providing of relevant ecological master data.
