Special Issue "Towards Sustainable Manufacturing Processes"
A special issue of Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (ISSN 2504-4494).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Interests: manufacturing; sustainable machining processes; modeling and optimization
During the past decades, health and environmental concerns have arisen because of the pollution and consumption of natural resources. To address these concerns and provide effective solutions, sustainability has become an essential feature of modern manufacturing. Providing environmentally friendly processes and optimizing energy consumption are two essential requirements to achieve sustainable manufacturing. The concept of sustainable manufacturing is described and analyzed at three main levels, namely, product, process, and system. The interaction among the three levels paves the road to achieve the desired goals. Environmental, economic, and social aspects of sustainability have to be taken into account to ensure an effective utilization of the available resources.
With this in mind, a Special Issue entitled “Towards Sustainable Manufacturing Processes” is being launched. This Special Issue includes high-quality papers dealing with modeling, simulation, optimization, and assessment of sustainable manufacturing processes. Both original research articles as well as review articles are welcome.
