Sustainable Product Lifecycle Management - A Lifecycle based Conception of Monitoring a Sustainable Product Development
Several solutions for the monitoring of sustainability of product development processes have been developed but the subject is still not solved satisfactorily. All of them focus on the three dimensions of sustainability as single pillars. In this paper a monitoring concept is being proposed, that is based on the Integrated Sustainability Triangle. The concept introduces a method for the quantification and monitoring of sustainability by using an integrated interpretation of the 21st century paradigm dimensions. In addition, the concept includes parameters on the whole product lifecycle. It contributes to extending the Product Lifecycle Management concept.
