Abstract: Observing the public discussion on environmental issues, it becomes evident that environmentally clean products and processes will represent a competitive factor of strategic impact to producing companies, although it is not clear how to model the how of material over a product's life cycle in order to capture relevant environmental information and provide it to the respective business functions. This paper proposes a concept for an underlying, unified information model and its application in an environmentally oriented production management system (EPMS). The model describes economical and environmental aspects along a product's life cycle and makes this information accessible to production planning and control.
