    Abstract

    The overall aim of the paper is to provide an understanding of the issues involved in implementation of life cycle assessment/costing in product and system development. The paper aims to produce an in-depth understanding of the barriers to implementation of LCA by developers of products and systems, and opportunities for introducing environmental criteria; produce an in-depth understanding of information requirements for the designer, and improvement potentials and resources in product manufacturing, use, recycle and end-of-life process; produce an in-depth understanding of the attitudes of practitioners among product and system developers to the subject area, and an understanding of possible future directions for product development; participate actively in development and documentation of methods for Improvement Assessments in LCA internationally; integrate CAD-LCA systems in the early stages of the product development; develop a methodology for aggregating environmental impact scores and resource consumption scores into a single score based on the EDIP methodology and Actual Life Cycle Costing.
