This paper attempts to highlight shortcomings in the concept of sustainability and ways to make the concept more workable by presenting the development of an Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) as a combination of discrete event simulation and ecological material flow analysis for production processes. The motivation behind the focus on simulation techniques on one hand and on production processes on the other, is the understanding that the current metabolic rates of today's… CONTINUE READING
