Life cycle engineering explores technologies for shifting industry from mass production and consumption paradigms to closed-loop manufacturing paradigms, in which required functions are provided with the minimum amount of production. This subject is discussed from various aspects: life cycle design, design for environment, reduce-reuse-recycle, life cycle assessment, and sustainable business models. This book collects papers from the 14th International CIRP Life Cycle Engineering Conference, the longest-running annual meeting in the field.... on Life Cycle Engineering, Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, June 11th-13th, 2007 Shozo Takata, Yasushi Umeda. of the art about equipment finance in manufacturing.
