Sustainable manufacturing as a factor of innovative production processes
Nachhaltige Fertigung als ein Faktor innovativer Herstellverfahren
The challenge of a modern society is to assure a permanent economical impact in terms of goods and services. It attends to rising demands of the market for high quality, reliable and reasonably priced products and short cycle times. Therefore, the entire production process is characterized by ongoing innovations and reorganizations. The aim of modern industrial production processes is to provide products with a higher added value in a shorter time-to-market. This is ensured by technological innovations in all parts of manufacturing. Moreover, the whole life cycle of products is accompanied by customer related service provisions. Commencing with time and cost reducing product design and development, up to the recycling in the end of the product life cycle, the implementation of new production processes increases. The paper presents new developments and applications in case of product design, machining strategies, finish operations and recycling technologies.
