Abstract

As the global resources depletion, climate change, and environmental pollution are worsening due to increasing globalized industrialization, manufacturing industry is under pressure to cope with the problems and maintain competiveness. Sustainable manufacturing has been proposed to meet the challenges faced by the industrialized countries. The measurement of sustainability in manufacturing is an enabler to quantitatively measure performance in sustainability in specific manufacturing processes. A sustainable manufacturing measurement infrastructure is proposed in this paper. The components include sustainable indicators and metrics repository, measurement methods and guidelines, and sensor descriptions. The sustainability measurement infrastructure provides a foundation for decision-making tools development and is expected to be tightly integrated into business strategy development processes.
