Increased competition and new customer requirements make manufacturers to strive towards selling industrialproduct/service systems. Product/service systems have derived partly from environmental research and development.However, it is still not clear how much can be earned in environmental and economic concerns.This paper aims to explore the economic and environmental benefits of product/service systems from a life-cycle perspectivein comparison to traditional selling approaches. To fulfill this aim, four case studies were performed at four product/servicesystem providers in Sweden. The data was collected through semi-structured interviews, telephone interviews and dataprovided by the product/service system providers. A comparison life-cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted betweentraditional scenarios and product/service system scenarios. In addition, a life-cycle cost (LCC) analysis was conducted. Tosummarize, in all four cases the product/service system scenarios had environmental and economic advantages incomparison to their traditional selling scenarios.
