Instead of implementing each element individually, engineers must be aware of multiple interactions among all major value creation factors and their life-cycle stages. Interactions are analyzed by a set of factors and hierarchical levels within a production system based on empirical observations and described in analytical models. Such analyses and missing information about the current condition of the system and its parts remain limited to addressing specific aspects of interactions among factors and stages for multiple decision making. To build a case-based scope addressing the interactions among a set of factors and life-cycle stages, a comprehensive approach for mapping and integrating relevant elements of sustainable manufacturing is proposed in this paper. By applying the approach, a case study demonstrates how to integrate different levels of factors into various life-cycle stages in order to monitor their condition and provide necessary information for maintenance activities in a service provider company.
