21. Energy Metrics for Product Assembly Equipment and Processes
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/13/2013
Authors: Shaw C Feng, FNU Kumaraguru, Christopher U Brown, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Abstract: A key factor deciding the capacity to increase the sustainability of final products is the energy efficiency. The energy embodied in a product is an aggregation of all of the energy embodied in the products' components and subsystems, expended throug ...

22. Integration of Energy Information for Product Assembly and Logistics Processes
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/13/2013
Authors: Shaw C Feng, FNU Kumaraguru, Kincho H. Law, Kyeong Rim Ahn
Abstract: This paper presents an on-going effort at NIST to model the energy performance in assembly and supply chain processes as a part of a larger sus-tainability improvement goal. Energy performance modeling comprises two dis-tinct metrics like energy cons ...

23. Status and Opportunities to Support Product Category Rules in the U.S.
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/12/2013
Author: Rita Schenck
Abstract: Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are a kind of ecolabel that discloses the environmental impacts of a product over its life cycle, using the science of life cycle assessment. EPDs hold out the promise of supporting science based decisions in ...

24. A Model Based Continuous Improvement Methodology for Sustainable Manufacturing
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Sanjay Jain, Guodong Shao, Alexander Brodsky, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: This paper proposes a model based continuous improvement methodology to support efforts to achieve sustainable manufacturing, i.e., to increase efficiency and reduce environmental impact of manufacturing systems. Past efforts have provided guidance a ...

25. An Integrated Approach to Information Modeling for the Sustainable Design of Products
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Paul W Witherell, Douglas Eddy, Ian Grosse, Sundar Krishnamurty
Abstract: The design process for more sustainable products can be best accomplished in a tradeoff-based design process that can methodically handle conflicting objectives, such as, environmental impact, cost, and product performance. Also, regulations, as repr ...

26. IDENTIFYING THE MATERIAL INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUSTAINABLE DECISION MAKING
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Anantha Narayanan Narayanan, Paul W Witherell, Jae H. Lee, Katherine C Morris, Rachuri Rachuri
Abstract: Materials play a central role in product manufacturing, contributing to each phase of product development in the form of either a component or process material. As the product revolves around materials, so does much of the product information. Mate ...

27. SUSTAINABILITY CHARACTERIZATION FOR DIE CASTING PROCESS
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Megan F. Watkins, Mahesh Mani, Kevin W Lyons, Satyandra K. Gupta
Abstract: The manufacturing sector accounts for approximately one-third of the total energy consumption in the United States. Today, sustainable manufacturing has become an area of increasing interest, as companies look to reduce their manufacturing footprint ...

28. Sustainable Process Analytics Formalism: A Case Study of Book Binding System for Energy Optimization
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/7/2013
Authors: Duck Bong Kim, Guodong Shao, Alexander Brodsky, Ryan Consylman
Abstract: Energy is considered as one of important factors in sustainable manufacturing due to its relevance to depletion of material resources and generation of carbon oxide. To improve energy efficiency in manufacturing, optimization techniques are essential ...

29. CHARACTERIZING ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF THE INJECTION MOLDING PROCESS
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 6/14/2013
Authors: Jatinder Madan, Mahesh Mani, Kevin W Lyons
Abstract: Presently available systems for sustainability assessment do not fully account for aspects related to a product‰s manufacturing. In an effort to make more sustainable decisions, today‰s industry seeks reliable methods to assess and compare sustainabi ...

30. Disassembly Process Information Model for Remanufacturing
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 4/22/2013
Authors: Shaw C Feng, Hanmin Lee, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Che B. Joung, Parisa Ghodous, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: The disassembly process is an essential activity performed on out-of-service products for remanufacturing. A disassembly process includes many subprocesses, such as separation, cleaning, repair, replacement, and inspection. The main purpose of perfor ...
