Abstract

Green manufacturing can be difficult to understand for managers focused on traditional financial accounting reports. When making decisions on their ability to change their entire product life cycle to green manufacturing, traditional financial accounting may at first seem at odds with this endeavor. Although it is often ignored, quality costs usually occupy an enormous amount of company's financial affairs. Therefore, a conceptual model combining green manufacturing and Cost of Quality (COQ) is needed to assist in decision-making. There are several decision strategies in green manufacturing which are included in this model. In order to bridge the gap between green manufacturing and the cost of quality, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) concept is introduced to generate a more accurate analytical process within the conceptual model. Overall, a conceptual model for cost of quality in green manufacturing with life cycle assessment approach will be presented for better decision-making.
