21. A Methodology for Handling Standards Terminology for Sustainable Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7965
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 10/30/2013
Authors: Anantha Narayanan Narayanan, David Jacques Antoine Lechevalier, Katherine C Morris, Rachuri Rachuri
Abstract: In order to develop the discipline of sustainable manufacturing, the language of discourse needs to be properly and clearly communicated, for both manufacturers and consumers. As a result a range of information standards that define the needed te ...

22. Feature Information Model for Disassembly
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Sustainable Manufacturing
Published: 8/20/2013
Author: Shaw C Feng
Abstract: As sustainability becomes an important issue nowadays, disassembly becomes one of the key processes to turn out-of-service products into new or rebuilt products to save energy and materials. A disassembly process includes many subprocesses, such as s ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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 ...

25. 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 ...

26. 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 ...

27. 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

30. 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 ...
