Abstract

Environmental issues are becoming more and more important in manufacturing, sustainable production and environmentally benign manufacturing because of the rising concern of climate change, depletion of natural resources and pollution. The paper will evaluate and compare three methods, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Value Stream Mapping (VSM) and Discrete Event Simulation (DES) which are used to evaluate the ecoefficiency and environmental aspects of production and products. The evaluation of the methods is based on the experience obtained.
