Day 7 Week 1 15
Selecta simple consumer product, such as a wooden baseball bat, bottled spring water, fresh-consumption tomatoes, and so forth.
Complete the template for your chosen product, showing specific activities involved in its production during the input, input transforming work, output, and end of initial product life phases.
Copy the activities on the flow chart to the Supply and Value Chain Activities column of the Supply Chain, Value Chain, and Lifecycle Assessment Worksheet. For each activity, note the most likely inefficiencies encountered at this point in product life.
Enter these findings in the Likely Inefficiencies in the Supply and Value Chains column.
Address specific concerns in the End of Initial Product Life row. Inefficiencies include defectsin the work process design; delays; mistakes; accidents; rework; negligence; shortages or depletion of raw material; defects in and contamination of process inputs; solid, gaseous, aqueous, energy, physicalchemical hazard, biohazard wastes;operationally avoidable regulatory compliance activities; regulatory sanctions; and loss of product attractiveness.
Examine each inefficiency, and determine whether or not there are risks of specific associated adverse environmental changes. Emphasis shifts from supply and value chains and their conventional inefficiencies to adverse sustainability issues defined through basic lifecycle assessment concepts and methods.
Statethe nature of each adverse change in terms of the cause, the affected environmental element, and its significance.
Enter these findings in the Lifecycle Assessment column.
Address specific concerns listed in the End of Initial Product Life row. Specific concerns include soil mining, economic poison applications, resource depletions, controlled and uncontrolled releases of various types of waste, and so forth.
