Topical Collection "Sustainability on Production and Industrial Management"
Interests: manufacturing engineering; maintenance technologies; maintenance management; multi-criteria decision-making methods; sustainability performance
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Sustainable production depends on the management of waste minimization, energy consumption, resources saving (e.g., water, energy, etc.), the reliability of the machines used (in regard to the high environmental impact of maintenance, repairs, and replacement), and the increase of human wellbeing in working environments. To develop more sustainable societies, industries need to better understand how to respond to environmental, economic, and social challenges, and to transform industrial behavior.
This Special Issue aims to show recent research on the concepts, methods, tools, and applications for sustainable production in order to advance and promote the development of modern and intelligent production systems and industrial management. I hope that by developing the field tools and knowledge we can help to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable industrial system.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- sustainable technologies
- sustainable operations and maintenance
- sustainable work environments
- methods, tools, and practices for sustainability of production and industrial management
- sustainability assessment of industrial processes and/or products
- remanufacturing of industrial products
- multiple life cycles of industrial products (reuse, recycle, reconditioning)
- closing the material loops in production process
