Abstract

Recently there has been an increased focus on the environmental aspects of the manufacturing industry across the world. Boeing and NIST have studied the incorporation of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) parameters into Discrete Event Simulation (DES) as a means to analyze sustainable performance in the manufacturing area. Accurate analysis of manufacturing processes using Discrete Event Simulation requires detailed CNC production data. Using MTConnect, production LCA data from Boeing shop floor machine tools was acquired and was used to develop Discrete Event Simulation models. We will discuss our implementation, and analyze results of incorporating shop floor LCA data directly in DES models.
