To obtain verification of this methodology, an eco-redesign case study of a product has been carried out from a furniture publishing SME which applies lean management to its entire production chain. Some proposed improvements resulting from this case study were: Design for dismantling, Multifunction, Dematerialisation, Increasing the material of renewable origin & Use of recycled material. The results indicate that this ecodesign proposal may be applied in a simpler procedure in companies which have already lean management criteria. Even more, lean management facilitates the development of life cycle assessment studies.
