Product Lifecycle Management Approach for Sustainability

By N. Duque Ciceri, M. Garetti and S. Terzi


Starting from the framework of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), sustainability should be provided by continuous sharing of information among the different product lifecycle phases. A PLM system provides lifecycle knowledge generated by PLM systems through product lifecycle activities. The paper aims at presenting how PLM systems represent a very important foundation for achieving a more sustainable paradigm for life, a more sustainable development, engineering, manufacturing, use and disposal of products.Organised by: Cranfield UniversityMori Seiki – The Machine Tool Compan
