Summary Manufacturing accounts for a significant portion of energy expenditure. Thus, energy efficient and environmentally friendly (EEEF) manufacturing practices are of significant importance. Sustainability plays a key role to manufacturing, becoming a major factor for manufacturers to be competitive in the global market. It would not only be important to the energy and environmental sectors, but also be substantially beneficial to society and economy. Sustainable manufacturing covers a broad spectrum of manufacturing, including both implementation of advanced manufacturing technology and developing energy-efficient manufacturing systems, as well as extension of product life cycle. Automation, as a vital factor to the success of sustainable manufacturing, plays a critical role. In recent years, it has attracted substantial effort from researchers in both academia and industry to provide efficient scientific and engineering solutions for sustainable manufacturing. This edited book of Sustainable Production Automation presents the recent development of innovative algorithms, models, heuristics, and techniques for production control and operation management in the area of sustainable manufacturing systems. In addition to overviews of recent development in sustainable manufacturing technology and practices, optimization and control methodologies for energy efficient manufacturing are the focuses in this volume. Remanufacturing system modeling and analysis, which are key elements for product life cycle, are also studied. We expect this volume can stimulate more original, significant, visionary, and in-depth research in sustainable production automation, to improve process, efficiency, productivity, quality, and reliability in manufacturing.
