Circular Economy has emerged in the last years as an industrial pattern that rethinks the entire design and production cycle of products and goods, to obtain the minimal environmental impact and maximize the energy efficiency. This pattern creates product transformation cycles, that allow to re-use parts and renew energy, defining Circular Economy Ecosystems. Such cycles, are very interesting systems from a performance evaluation point of view: in this paper we give a Colored Petri Net perspective to circular economy. In particular, we focus on an example taken from the literature that considers car manufacturing, and we show how we can deal with the problem using standard performance evaluation techniques. Results from performance analysis of the case study, allow to focus on new interesting metrics and performance indicators, that might not be fully studied with conventional techniques applied by expert of the economical domain.

Abstract

Circular Economy has emerged in the last years as an industrial pattern that rethinks the entire design and production cycle of products and goods, to obtain the minimal environmental impact and maximize the energy efficiency. This pattern creates product transformation cycles, that allow to re-use parts and renew energy, defining Circular Economy Ecosystems. Such cycles, are very interesting systems from a performance evaluation point of view: in this paper we give a Colored Petri Net perspective to circular economy. In particular, we focus on an example taken from the literature that considers car manufacturing, and we show how we can deal with the problem using standard performance evaluation techniques. Results from performance analysis of the case study, allow to focus on new interesting metrics and performance indicators, that might not be fully studied with conventional techniques applied by expert of the economical domain.
