This book is based on an anthology of papers from experts from the United States and India, along with a summary of focused discussions and suggestions in several areas of critical importance within the broad topic of sustainability in development of products, services and manufacturing systems. The material is based on the work presented and discussed at the Indo-US Workshop on Designing Sustainable Products, Services and Manufacturing Systems, organized jointly by Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA during its 18-20 August 2009 workshop, at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. The workshop was fully funded by the Indo-US Science and Technology Forum, New Delhi, India. The primary objective of the workshop was to bring together domain experts from India and the USA to discuss the social, economic, environmental, and technological aspects of designing sustainable systems, especially manufacturing systems. The workshop was highly interactive in nature and lasted throughout the three days. The workshop was comprised of keynote sessions, technical sessions, panel discussions, and breakout sessions that addressed several important issues about the production of sustainable systems from participants from both India and the USA. The workshop is intended to lead to the formation of an Indo-US Joint Networking Centre in sustainable design for collaboration between Indian and US researchers, educators and practitioners.
