This paper reviews recent and relevant literature on the role of performability across the sustainable value chain by first introducing pertinent material in green supply chains, life cycle analyses, and EcoDesign methodologies. A new sustainable product life cycle framework is then proposed to represent key lifetime stages of sustainable systems. New research in performability is covered across the value chain of a green enterprise regarding the collection, remanufacturing, reuse, and end-of-life support service systems. Finally, future research challenges in this field are identified and discussed.
