Design and Manufacture for Sustainable Development brings together a collection of papers from a conference held at the University of Liverpool in June 2002 that inspire the interchange of ideas on the theory, technology, tools, and methodology for the entire product life cycle within the framework of sustainable development. It also embraces key subjects including strategy, design, materials, manufacturing, packaging, distribution, disposal, recycling, and auditing. TOPICS COVERED INCLUDE: Philosophy of, and strategy for, sustainable technologies Design principles for sustainable development Sustainable manufacturing technologies Use of recycling/bio-degradable materials Re-use and recycling design and technologies Tools for sustainable product design Measurement and auditing Best practices and case studies Impact of emerging legislation International trends and future development. Sustainable development will have a fundamental impact on the engineering community since, through design and manufacture, we are responsible for the use of energy, materials, and processes for the complete product life cycle. This is an essential volume for the bookshelves of those wanting to be well informed about this evolving technology.

The increasing demand for energy, raw materials and goods arising from world population growth, the emerging concept of sustainable development is concerned with meeting such challenges. The widely accepted Brundtland definition of sustainable development states that it is the ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The papers in this volume are from a conference organised by the University of Liverpool in September 2003 and are dedicated to the holistic study and interchange of ideas on the theory, technology, tools, methodology for the entire product life cycle within the framework of sustainable development. Design and Manufacture for Sustainable Development 2003 brings together industry leaders and the cutting edge of academic research in this critical area and includes, Life cycle engineering - from methodology to enterprise culture teaching mechanical engineering course relating to the environment Biodegradable plastics for hygenic disposable products Assessment for product sustainability An exploration of the role values play in designer decision making and how this effects ecodesign outcomes Laser technology applied to sustainable demolition and high-energy, re-usable bricks Sustainability principles for product design Public perceptions of sustainability, energy efficiency and recycling - how these can inform the design process

Business innovation and industrial intelligence are paving the way for a future in which smart factories, intelligent machines, networked processes and Big Data are combined to foster industrial growth. The maturity and growth of instrumentation, monitoring and automation as key technology drivers support Industry 4.0 as a viable, competent and actionable business model. This book offers a primer, helping readers understand this paradigm shift from industry 1.0 to industry 4.0. The focus is on grasping the necessary pre-conditions, development & technological aspects that conceptually describe this transformation, along with the practices, models and real-time experience needed to achieve sustainable smart manufacturing technologies. The primary goal is to address significant questions of what, how and why in this context, such as:What is Industry 4.0?What is the current status of its implementation?What are the pillars of Industry 4.0?How can Industry 4.0 be effectively implemented?How are firms exploiting the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and other emerging technologies to improve their production and services?How can the implementation of Industry 4.0 be accelerated?How is Industry 4.0 changing the workplace landscape?Why is this melding of the virtual and physical world needed for smart production engineering environments?Why is smart production a game-changing new form of product design and manufacturing?

This book offers a comprehensive review of sustainability and product design, providing useful information on the relevant regulations and standards for industries to meet increasing market demands for eco-products, while reducing their impact on the environment. The examples and methods presented allow readers to gain insights into sustainable products. The authors also explain how to develop products with sustainability features by applying tools and methods for sustainable design and manufacture. These tools/methods include • Regulations/directives related to sustainable product development • Popular lifecycle analysis software packages • Environmental and social lifecycle impact assessment methods • Lifecycle inventory databases • Eco-point and eco-accounting infrastructure • ICT and traceability technologies for sustainable product development • Sustainable design and manufacture • Integrated approach for sustainable product development A description of each sustainability tool is accompanied by easy-to-understand guidelines as well as sustainable product development methods. Five different case studies are also presented to illustrate how to apply the tools and methods into the development of real sustainable products. In view of the increasing pressure on industries to meet the, sometimes conflicting, demands of the market and environment, this book is a valuable resource for engineers and managers in manufacturing companies wishing to update their knowledge of sustainable product development. It is also suitable for researchers and consultants who are involved or interested in sustainable product development, as well as for students studying sustainable development, production, and engineering management.
