Sustainable Production Automation

Book Description

Sustainable production automation, as an effective way to enable and expedite transitions to sustainability and enhance resource utilizations, attracts substantial efforts from researchers in both academy and industry. This book presents the recent development of innovative algorithms, models, heuristics, hardware and software in broad areas of sustainable production systems. It focuses on design, analysis and management of the processes involved in the product life cycle (from design to delivery to return) to have the minimal negative impacts on society (including environmental, economic and social). The contributors are experts from both universities and industrial research centers.
