Product developers are the main target for environmental impact assessment. Every day operation in manufacturing industry considers only site-specific aspects as energy consumption or material usage. Moreover, those aspects are mainly in-place for economic reasons. Discrete event simulation is widely used by industry for problem solving on a factory and logistic level. Including life cycle assessment in simulation models provide detailed assessment for production system. Yet, it requires specialization to create robust environmental models in discrete event simulation. Simplified software supporting production engineers in modelling and data harvesting reduce specialist requirements. This paper present a first version of software developed for the production engineers. The software supports modelling and analyses using discrete event simulation models with life cycle assessment.

Nyckelord: Discrete event simulation; Life cycle assessment; Production flow simulation
