Abstract:Increased competition and new customer requirements have forced manufacturers to strive towards selling industrial product/service systems. Product/service systems have derived partly from environmental research and development. However, it is still not clear how much can be earned in environmental and economic concerns.

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.
