METHODOLOGY PROPOSAL FOR IDENTIFYING LIFE-CYCLE COSTS (LCC) OF MULCHERS OF UNDESIRABLE GROWTH

Abstract

Management of life-cycle costs is an approach that leads to sustainable development and effective use of company’s resources. By using the life-cycle cost method analysis - LCC creates a foundation for complex evaluation of costs of a product from its conceptions to the end of its life-cycle. In the introduction, we present a general scheme of a life-cycle cost analysis and calculation of costs. The analytical part includes a description of two types of analysed equipment - mulchers- AHWI FM 600 profi and Seppi m_ Midifrost dt 250. Specific relevant criteria were identified that can be used to evaluate life-cycle costs (LCC) of the above-mentioned equipment. Further, we outlined results of data collection and primary evaluation of this data. The goal is to create a platform for economic evaluation of increase in life-cycle of analysed initial and adjusted equipment based on specifically proposed methods.
