This paper aims to explore the economic and environmental benefits of product/service systems from a lifecycle perspective in comparison to traditional selling approaches. To fulfill this aim; four case studies were performed at four product/service system providers in Sweden. The data was collected through semistructured interviews; telephone interviews and data provided by the product/service system providers. A comparison Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was conducted between traditional scenarios and product/service system scenarios. In addition; a Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis was conducted. To summarize; in all four cases the product/service system scenarios had environmental and economic advantages in comparison to their traditional selling scenarios.
Keywords: Integrated Product Service Offerings (IPSO); PSS; Life Cycle Assessment (LCA); Life Cycle Cost (LCC)
