Abstract

There is a perceived dichotomy between the aim of increased product lifetimes and recyclability, promoted by sustainable development practitioners, and the reduced product lifecycle and cost-effective production methods demanded by the marketplace. To address these issues, this paper presents an assessment of the available digital enterprise technologies for the concurrent design of sustainable products and the associated manufacturing systems. Some of the tools and techniques which are available to increase the sustainability and manufacturability of products through innovative manufacturing methodologies are investigated.
