Sample Life Cycle Stages for a Treatment Project

Each step in the life cycle of a product, package, or material used in a treatment project can be categorized within one life-cycle stage. Viewing each step or process as a subsystem of the total product system can facilitate data gathering for inventory of the whole system.
