Quality-manufacturing checklist with Servqual indicator

This worksheet results from the CNPq project 371437/2020-2. It is a checklist to assess the quality of a manufacturing dataset based on the application of the ServQual scale, based on the differences between expectations (from data providers) and perceptions (from external reviewers). It can also access this worksheet in the publication made to Revista LALCA.

Quality Checklist

This worksheet results from the CNPq project 406017/2018-2. It is a checklist for critical analysis of compliance with the Qualidata Guide requirements in LCA datasets. It facilitates the filling and identification of requirements that were met or not by the dataset. In addition, this worksheet allows comments to be made regarding why a requirement is not met and descriptions arising from their fulfillment. Click the button to download.


Mini-course: Introduction to life cycle thinking

The course includes a series of video lessons and materials in .pdf for access and download and assessments between each of its 04 modules (Introduction, Public Policies, Business, Sustainable Lifestyles), with issuing a certificate. The mini-course is online and free, was conceived by The Life Cycle Initiative, and is even available in Portuguese. The course was translated in 2020 into our language under the coordination and participation of members of EngS - Engenharia da Sustentabilidade and other colleagues.
