Presentation for 6th International Conference on Life Cycle Management, Gothenburg 2013.08.25-28.


We suggest a procedure that radically reduces the critical review costs without compromising their thoroughness and overall quality. This procedure has 3 elements: A fixed panel for all reviews, an already critically reviewed background database, and a software-supported review procedure. The presentation discusses these elements in the light of the upcoming ISO 14071 on critical review.
