The best place to get information on life cycle analysis is from the US EPA's Office of Research Development. I do not know if the following publications are posted at the website (, but you can get their paper fromat by buying them from the NTIS at 800-363-2068, operated by the US Dept. of Commerce:

 Life cycle design framework and demonstration Projects: Profiles of AT T and Allied Signal, EPA/600/R-95/107, 7/95
 Life cycle assessment: Public data sources for the LCA practitioner, PB 95-191227, 4/95 (this is a very good one)
 Life cycle assessment: Inventory Guidelines and Principles, EPA/600/R-92/245, 2/93. (a methodlogical essential).
 Life cycle design guidance manual: Environmanl requirements and the product system, EPA/600/R-92/226, 1/93.

Also very good is:

 Environmental life cycle management: A Guide for better business decisions by Environment Canada. Enquiry Center: tel: 819-247-1900.
Additionally, every consultant and his/her brother will be delighted to sell you consulting on the subject.
