  • Multi-criteria decision-making for the life cycle of sustainable high
           pressure die casting products
    • Authors: Emanuele Pagone, Michail Papanikolaou, Konstantinos Salonitis, Mark Jolly
      Pages: 101 - 120
      Abstract: In the scientific literature there is a scarcity of comprehensive and organic studies on performance indicators encompassing sustainability and their influence on decision-making. This work aims at selecting the most suitable material to manufacture an automotive component using a high pressure die casting (HPDC) process according to four classes of metrics: cost, time, quality and sustainability. The performance of three different alloys (aluminium-A380, magnesium-AZ91D and zinc-ZA8) was evaluated considering overall product life cycle aspects and process characteristics through a deterministic technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS). Results show that the zinc alloy should be chosen on a unit mass-basis mainly thanks to its significantly superior quality and sustainability performance. This study demonstrates that the inclusion of the sustainability dimension in a multi-criteria decision analysis context challenges well-established material selection trends in the automotive industry developed during the past decades.

  • Design of disassembly-to-order system for reused components and recycled
           materials using linear physical programming
    • Authors: Yuki Kinoshita, Tetsuo Yamada, Surendra M. Gupta
      Pages: 121 - 149
      Abstract: To reduce the consumption of natural resources, a disassembly-toorder (DTO) system is required, where end-of-life (EOL) products are purchased and disassembled for component reuse and material recycling. A DTO system involves multiple uncertainties due to different qualities of EOL products. These uncertainties make it difficult to determine the number of take-back EOL products from suppliers to reuse, recycle, or send to disposal facilities, in order to satisfy multiple goals. To solve the multi-criteria DTO problem, linear physical programming (LPP) is used. LPP can seek a solution to satisfy preferences of a decision maker with respect to each criterion. This study attempts to achieve higher aspiration levels for multiple goals simultaneously in a DTO system by using LPP. A numerical example is conducted with three different EOL products composed of eight different components. It is found that only three components need to be procured from an outside components supplier to satisfy the demands by determining the number of purchased EOL products from the suppliers in the numerical experiment.

  • Decentralised identification of used exchange parts with a mobile
           application
    • Authors: Jan Lehr, Marian Schlüter, Jörg Krüger
      Pages: 150 - 164
      Abstract: Sustainable product development and use requires an extended life cycle of used and defective mechanical parts. Remanufacturing saves resources and helps the industry to utilise the product more efficiently. Reverse logistics is one of the most important challenges towards efficient remanufacturing. To improve this process, we propose an on-site part identification at the workshops. A fast on-site identification is essential for assisting repair shop personnel and saving time on searching for the right spare parts. Based on images taken by a mobile device our application provides various machine vision services, e.g., visual identification of used parts, already successfully tested in a sorting facility for remanufacturing parts. The mobile application provides a robust visual identification for different environments. We show that enhancing data for machine vision approaches with images from decentral sensors, i.e., mobile devices, leads to an improved identification accuracy.

  • Quantitative risk modelling for evaluating sustainable product designs
    • Authors: Christian Enyoghasi, Adam Brown, Ridvan Aydin, Fazleena Badurdeen
      Pages: 165 - 185
      Abstract: A major limitation in sustainable product design is the lack of comprehensive methods to evaluate the effect of various risks on its total lifecycle sustainability performance. Most risk management methods are qualitative in nature, making them unsuitable to fully capture the interdependencies between risk events. In this paper, we propose a methodology for identifying risks related to a product design over its total lifecycle and developing a risk network map to capture the interdependencies between these risks. A Bayesian belief network-based method is employed to quantitatively model and evaluate risks and to conduct risk sensitivity analysis on the total lifecycle sustainability performance. An industrial case study is presented to demonstrate the application of the proposed methodology and evaluate risks related to toner cartridge design. Sensitivity analysis is conducted to assess the likelihood of performance measures such as total lifecycle cost, global warming potential (GWP), water and energy use being influenced as various risks related to the product design changes. The proposed methodology can be useful for product designers to assess how different product design performance can be affected by risks and identify designs that will meet desired performance indicators.

  • A fracture mechanics approach to enhance product and process
           sustainability in diamond wire sawing of silicon wafers for solar cells
           through improved wire design
    • Authors: Arkadeep Kumar, Shreyes N. Melkote
      Pages: 186 - 200
      Abstract: By decreasing the subsurface damage in silicon wafers produced by diamond wire sawing, the mechanical strength of wafers can be increased, and the amount of silicon to be etched in subsequent manufacturing steps can be minimised, enhancing both product and process sustainability. Apart from the sawing process parameters, the subsurface damage in as-sawn silicon wafers is influenced by the design of the diamond wire. We present a fracture mechanics approach for the design of fixed abrasive diamond wires used in wire sawing of silicon wafers for solar cells. Starting from an allowable damage (crack) depth, indentation fracture mechanics and contact analysis are used to determine the wire design parameters, namely the grit protrusion and peripheral distribution of diamond abrasives. The improved wire design can reduce subsurface damage and thereby improve the surface integrity (product sustainability), and reduce the processing time and chemicals used in the subsequent saw-damage removal step (process sustainability).

  • Comparison of abrasive water jet technologies in terms of performance and
           kerf geometry accuracy for cutting ceramics
    • Authors: Florian Morczinek, Matthias Putz, Martin Dix
      Pages: 201 - 215
      Abstract: Hard machining of brittle materials such as ceramics is a process-oriented challenge. For the machining of such materials, abrasive water jet cutting is an appropriate alternative to the commonly used diamond grinding and laser cutting processes. In abrasive water jet machining the injection technology is currently used almost exclusively. Due to the realisation of the suspension jet technology a higher cutting performance can be achieved. In this article, the known injection technology and the suspension technology are compared. To do so, the influences on the quality were examined for trimming technical ceramics. The investigation illustrates that suspension technology trims with a higher accuracy than injection technology in matters of kerf geometry but with a lower material removal rate.

  • Characterising the sustainability performance of cyclic manufacturing
           processes: a hybrid manufacturing case
    • Authors: Sriram Manoharan, Dustin S. Harper, Karl R. Haapala
      Pages: 216 - 233
      Abstract: The drive for ever-increasing materials and energy efficiency and associated cost savings has compelled manufacturers to adopt flexible and rapid production systems. The technical limitations and sustainability concerns of conventional unit processes and sequential process flows have led to widespread adoption of advanced manufacturing processes that exhibit cyclic nature, termed cyclic manufacturing processes. While cyclic manufacturing processes enable efficient production through reduced time-to-market, lower production costs, and shorter manufacturing process chains, relatively little attention has been paid toward characterising their associated environmental, economic, and social impacts. A holistic manufacturing process modelling framework is developed to support sustainability performance characterisation of cyclic manufacturing processes. The developed framework enables model reusability, extensibility, and composability to characterise, assess, and extract product and process sustainability information. It is applied to characterise environmental impacts of a low-cost, hybrid (additive-subtractive) process for production of polylactide (PLA) parts, and compared with a conventional subtractive process (milling).

  • Investigating the microstructure and morphology of chips in dry, flood
           coolant and MQL machining of Ti-6Al-4V alloy
    • Authors: Ashutosh Khatri, Muhammad P. Jahan
      Pages: 234 - 250
      Abstract: The objective of this research is to investigate the morphology and microstructure of the chips formed during milling of Ti-6Al-4V alloy using conventional flood coolant and sustainable dry and MQL machining conditions. It was found that the chips formed in dry machining suffered a higher degree of serration indicating higher chip temperature and ineffective cooling of the chips. The bi-modal structure of Ti-6Al-4V remained the same in the bulk part of the chips. However, phase transformations were seen for all three machining conditions at the shearing plane of the chips. The chips formed in dry machining had comparatively higher percentage of <i>β</i>-phase due to phase transformation. For the chips obtained in flood coolant machining, the transformed <i>β</i>-phase possibly returned to martensitic <i>α</i>-phase due to rapid cooling. The MQL machined chips had the least transformation of <i>β</i>-phase, indicating minimal changes in mechanical properties of the machined parts in sustainable MQL machining.

  • Constant surface roughness over tool-lifetime due to online process
           monitoring and cutting parameter adaption in turning of gear steel
    • Authors: Eckart Uhlmann, Tobias Holznagel, Patrick Berardi
      Pages: 251 - 265
      Abstract: High process forces and temperatures in turning operations cause high tool wear rates. Tool wear such as flank face abrasion has direct impact on workpiece geometry and resulting surface roughness. Since tools are used until tool life criterion is reached, surface quality can vary widely over the workpiece even when constant cutting parameters are utilised. A measurement system based on laser triangulation has been developed which enables the online measurement of surface roughness on the workpiece during the turning process. Using the online surface roughness measurements, closed-loop controllers were developed in order to adapt the tool feed and the cutting velocity to retain constant surface roughness even when tool wear is progressing. An optimised process with constant cutting parameters was benchmarked to the developed processes with adaptive cutting parameters. It can be shown that parameter adaption has the potential to lead to efficient processes and increases the tool-lifetime <i>T<SUB align="right">Toollife</i> significantly.

  • Guidelines to compare additive and subtractive manufacturing approaches
           under the energy demand perspective
    • Authors: Giuseppe Ingarao, Paolo C. Priarone, Rosa Di Lorenzo, Luca Settineri
      Pages: 266 - 280
      Abstract: In order to characterise the environmental performance of additive manufacturing (AM) processes, comparative analyses are required. Different manufacturing approaches (such as additive and subtractive ones), besides adopting different equipment, use different kinds and amounts of material. Therefore, the material-related flow has to be followed throughout the entire product life. Differences in environmental impact arise at each step of the life cycle: material production, manufacturing, use, disposal, and transportation. A life cycle-based methodology able to take due account of all the factors of influence on the total energy demand for the production of metal components is given in this paper. Decision support tools for identifying the most sustainable manufacturing route (subtractive versus AM-based approaches) are presented for different scenarios. The aim of the present paper is to contribute to the debate concerning the environmental impact characterisation of AM processes.

  • Minimising carbon emissions and machining costs with improved human health
           in sustainable machining of austenitic stainless steel through
           multi-objective optimisation
    • Authors: Alper Uysal, James R. Caudill, Julius Schoop, I.S. Jawahir
      Pages: 281 - 299
      Abstract: Environmental and societal concerns have fuelled an ever growing need for more sustainable products and machining processes. Much research has been focused on this issue in aviation, automotive, and medical industries where austenitic stainless steels have been often used. During machining of these materials, high cutting forces and carbon emissions make the machining process significantly more challenging. Therefore, in this study sustainable orthogonal turning experiments were conducted using dry cutting, MQL, and cryogenic cooling at different cutting speeds and undeformed chip thicknesses. Experimental cutting forces were measured and used to analytically determine the carbon (CO<SUB align="right">2) emissions. In order to determine the optimal machining parameters for minimising the CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions and the overall economic cost with improved human health conditions, a multi-objective optimisation problem was established. The optimal machining parameters were determined to be a cutting speed of 100 m/min and undeformed chip thickness of 0.12 mm, while using cryogenic cooling.

      Pages: 300 - 318
      Abstract: The quantum of minerals extracted from ore is critical for the success of mineral processing, hence the necessity to optimise the process flows in order to recover as much minerals as possible. The aim of this research was to identify bottlenecks and recovery-hampering factors within the comminution and flotation circuits of the concentrator plant at a platinum processing company in Zimbabwe. Modelling and simulation of the circuits were carried using Arena and Limn simulation software to optimise the process flows for improved throughput, maximum mineral recovery and enhanced efficiency and productivity. Alternative configurations of the layout of equipment were tested and compared with the original setup. The recommended reconfiguration of the circuits achieved increases of 2.97% in mineral recovery and 4 grams/ton in productivity resulting in a maximised output for the sustainable processing of platinum ore.

    • Authors: Wen Shen, Dan Hu, Elif Elçin Günay, Gül E. Okudan Kremer
      Pages: 319 - 335
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to review the past and current developments of supply chain management (SCM) to identify key possibilities and future trends. Through literature review and observations pertaining to SCM developments, the paper first reveals some early patterns of SCM in manufacturing and business operations. Then, it discusses the system integration and collaboration mechanisms that make up the dominant SCM foci in current research and applications. Finally, recent technological advances that are likely to impact SCM along with pressures for environmental sustainability are recognised as potential research directions. Contributions to sustainability along the SCM evolution are also noted. The paper is original in that it not only reviews the evolution of SCM but also includes a sustainability focus. The resultant discussion is likely to benefit SCM theorists and practitioners to meet future challenges.

  • Demand-oriented barriers and potentials for remanufacturing in Vietnam
    • Authors: Thomas Guidat, Aleksandra Wewer, Holger Kohl, Günther Seliger
      Pages: 336 - 349
      Abstract: Since the liberalisation of its economy, Vietnam has emerged as a key location for investment in workforce-intensive assembly processes operation, through an available and cheap workforce. Soaring national consumption levels for goods and services generate in turn unprecedented quantities of waste to be treated locally. In 2015, governmental decision 16/2015/QÐ-TTg set a basis for a national waste legislation for mechanical and electronic equipment goods. Remanufacturing is a non-destructive, industrial reuse strategy which aims at restoring products to original specifications by reusing a maximum number of original components in their current form. It has potential to provide Vietnam with an alternative to low value-added repair activities. As Vietnam is the fourth market for motorcycles in the world, this paper presents a case study about barriers and potentials for remanufacturing from the market and customer perspective. Potential solutions for supporting industrial development are suggested.

  • Increasing the sustainability of composite manufacturing processes by
           using algorithm-based optimisation and evaluation for process chain design
           
    • Authors: Florian Brillowski, Christoph Greb, Thomas Gries
      Pages: 350 - 364
      Abstract: Fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) are ideal for lightweight applications because of their superior weight-specific mechanical properties. Yet, many lightweight parts are still made of classic construction materials due to the resource and scrap intensive FRP production. The methods of operations research (OR) are a key enabler to overcome this problem and to facilitate a more sustainable use of production, planning and material resources. OR models are being used in other industries to reduce the costs for process planning by up to 45%. However, those methods have yet to be transferred and validated for planning of FRP production. The use of novel optimisation models offers the potential to utilise resources more efficiently and reduce development times by proper planning. This paper is about the development of a sustainable and resource-efficient methodology that implements OR models into the FRP planning process and offers the potential to reduce costs significantly.

  • Methodology for manufacturing sustainability evaluation of human-robot
           collaborations
    • Authors: Uwe Götze, Melanie Schildt, Barbara Mikus
      Pages: 365 - 378
      Abstract: The various challenges of a sustainable industrial production such as demographic change and resource scarcity induce the increasing need of a resource-efficient, eco-friendly, flexible and adaptive production with human-centred and ergonomic suitable working stations and conditions. The novel production approach of human-robot collaboration promises to contribute to meeting these requirements. Nevertheless, for designing and realising concrete applications, a significant evaluation comprising the economic, ecological and social dimensions of sustainability is needed. The paper presents a methodology for such evaluations of human-robot collaboration with respect to their contribution to sustainability. Additionally, the application of the methodology is illustrated by assessing a human-robot collaboration solution in a concrete industrial use case.

      Pages: 379 - 395
      Abstract: The tea industry is one of the main export earners of Sri Lanka with over 150 years of history. It faces severe threats to sustainability due to contamination issues, low productivity, yield drop, climate changes, labour shortage, internal migration of workforce etc. This study focuses on examining the environmental and social impacts of Sri Lankan tea processing industry to withstand global market challenges. The environmental impacts of tea processing were analysed using life cycle assessment techniques, while social impacts were evaluated by UNEP framework on social life cycle assessment. The fieldwork was carried out in one of the tea plantation companies located at multiple areas, within and external to the tea processing needs improvements in terms of environmental and social sustainability. Furthermore, the selected plantation company is lagging behind environmental sustainability when compared to the reference factory of Tea Research Institute Sri Lanka. Recommendations are provided to mitigate environmental and social hotspots identified in the study.

  • Augmented learning for industrial education

      Pages: 396 - 412
      Abstract: An efficient learning environment is required to cope with today's increasing innovation speed. Companies need methods and tools to transfer knowledge to employees in a fast way. Learners' cognitive focus should be shifted towards learning at the learning object, instead of transferring information from teaching material to the real world. Current learning environments are mostly incapable to merge physical learning tools with digital content at its point of use; therefore, the learner has to do it. Augmented reality offers the opportunity to show learning content directly on physical objects and to interact with it. Within this paper, two approaches on how to use augmented reality for teaching purposes are shown. One is for special machinery assembly of turbomachinery and the other for cocoa liquor production.

      Abstract: Mobility and transnational migration are current social developments among the population of the European Union. These developments in both society-at-large and companies, linked to the challenges of sustainability, lead to new requirements for working in the European Union. Teaching and learning in higher education needs to adapt to these requirements. As a result, new and innovative teaching and learning practices in higher education should provide competencies for transnational teamwork in the curriculum of tomorrow's engineers in order to ensure their competitiveness in the job market. A transnational project-oriented teaching and learning framework, which provides the future key competencies for young engineers was implemented in the course European Engineering Team (EET). Engineering students from four countries participated in a new project-based course that focused on the development of innovative and sustainable products and opportunities. The goal of this paper is to present results and lessons learnt from three cohorts of EET.
