About Life Cycle Management

The management of life cycles implies a new logic for governance, focusing specifically on the flow of material instead of a single nation or company. Furthermore, it is not enough to understand the physical material flows and the physical relationships in the life cycle. The actors managing the physical flow and the organizational relationships between them must also be understood.

In order to achieve life cycle action on the material flows that constitute the production and consumption of the world, many different scientific perspectives must be considered.
