What does the life cycle engineering concept refer to?

The term life cycle engineering refers to decision-making that embraces the concept of sustainable development of systems and business processes as part of continuous improvement. The life cycle approach provides the holistic view of how business and engineering decisions affect the occupational health and safety, environmental compliance, total cost of ownership and a myriad of other issues.

Life cycle engineering analyzes potential economic, environmental and technical impacts of products, services or processing methods over their whole life cycle. This multidimensional perspective ensures the consideration of all relevant factors.

Life cycle engineering provides the ability to:

  • Detect risks and quantify risks
  • Identify the significance of distinct life cycle issues
  • Develop sustainable and innovative work processes
  • Gain competitive advantages
  • Contribute to ecological innovation and reduce overall environmental burdens.

The benefits of life cycle engineering include extended asset life, reduced environmental impact and cost savings.
