While eco-balances and Material Flow Networks are common analysis tools of Environmental Management Information Systems (EMIS), discrete event simulation has not been used widely for this purpose. This paper argues in favour of combining discrete event simulation with material flow analysis to explore both the environmental and economic impact of business(More)
This paper outlines the application of a special Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) as combination of discrete event simulation with ecological material flow analysis for a selected production process. The software tool serves as decision aid for economic as well as ecological business problems. A combined view of the material flow as well(More)

This paper outlines the application of a special Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) that combines discrete event simulation (DES) and life cycle analysis (LCA) in addition to material flow analysis as an integrated part of the simulation software. The motivation behind the combination of these different techniques is to close the gap between(More)
