To meet the increasing need for practical life-cycle thinking in manufacturing, this paper proposes a method that includes the life-cycle perspective in manufacturing decision making. This method combines discrete-event simulation (DES) - commonly used for the conceptual evaluation of manufacturing systems - with life-cycle assessment (LCA). This combination captures the dynamic interrelationships between manufacturing processes in order to analyse systemic responses to configuration changes, something static LCA modelling cannot do. The method evolved when a bearing production line at SKF was being examined to relate manufacturing decision making to environmental consequences. This was done using DES to investigate how parameters normally used to optimize traditional manufacturing system performance influence energy use and material losses in manufacturing systems. The environmental consequences of this material loss and energy use are further calculated using LCA methodology. Results indicate that while the combination of the two methods increases the data collection workload, it uncovers previously hidden environmental consequences of manufacturing decision making and introduces a way to assess an industrial actor's manufacturing system using relevant LCA scenarios. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The current paper presents the results obtained from testing of high-nitrogen martensitic stainless steels and a cobalt-based alloy using an accelerated railing contact fatigue tester, the Polymet test rig. Although demineralised water is not a good lubricant in terms of, for example, its capability of building up a sufficient film thickness, it was possible to rank the tested alloys according to their performance. Corrosion products were observed on the over-rolled tracks, and the materials' resistance to pitting corrosion was assessed. Copyright © 2012 by ASTM International.
