Life cycle engineering deals with technologies for shifting the industry from mass production and mass consumption paradigm to closed loop manufacturing paradigm, in which required functions are provided for customers with the minimum amount of production. This subject is discussed from the various aspects, such as life cycle design, design for environment, reduce/reuse/recycle, life cycle assessment, and sustainable business models. 'Advances in Life Cycle Engineering for Sustainable Manufacturing Businesses' gathers together papers from the 14th International CIRP Life Cycle Engineering Conference. This conference is the longest running annual meeting in the field, in which papers are presented regarding developments of leading edge technologies, proposals of new concepts, and prominent industry case studies.... on Life Cycle Engineering, Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, June 11th-13th, 2007 Shozo Takata, Yasushi Umeda. of the art about equipment finance in manufacturing.
