|Title:||Development Overview of Sustainable Manufacturing Metrics|
|Published:||February 18, 2010|
|Abstract:||The manufacturing industry is facing the challenge of measuring sustainability performance in a product s life cycle. Developing metrics for sustainable manufacturing is critical to enable manufacturing companies to quantitatively measure the sustainability performance in specific manufacturing processes. This paper describes the development of an infrastructure for measuring the sustainability of a product in its entire lifecycle. The performance includes environmental, economical, and social benefits in stock material preparation, manufacturing, distribution, customer use, and post use. Infrastructural components include sustainability metrics repository, measurement methods, guidelines, and sustainability performance analysis and reporting tools. The sustainability measurement infrastructure provides a foundation for decision-making and is expected to be tightly integrated into a company s business strategy development processes.|
