Title: A Framework of Product and Process Metrics for Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: December 01, 2010
Abstract: This paper presents a framework for developing comprehensive product and process metrics for sustainable manufacturing, using machined products and machining processes examples, and addressing all three aspects of the triple bottom line environment, economy and society. The need for developing standardized metrics is discussed for the wider use of these metrics by different manufacturers. The occurrence of similar measurements in some of the metric categories indicates the potential and need for data sharing between product and process metrics. The differences, relationships and potential interactions between the product and process metrics are discussed from the viewpoint of their applications.
