Manufacturing Paradigm Shift Towards Better Sustainability
2013 (English)In: Cloud Manufacturing: Distributed Computing Technologies for Global and Sustainable Manufacturing / [ed] Weidong Li and Jörn Mehnen, London: Springer London, 2013, 99-119 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
A system paradigm is an abstract representation of the system; it is thesystem architecture that determines the types and numbers of the components andtheir relations in operation and interaction of the system. Its selection relies oncustomers’ requirements and manufacturing environment. Many system paradigmshave been proposed. However, most of them are based on an assumption that thelife-cycle and boundary of a system can be defined based on the customers’requirements. Since sustainability becomes essential to today’s manufacturingsystems, a new concern is how to evolve existing paradigms to meet new chal-lenges. The objectives of this chapter are, therefore, to examine the manufacturingrequirements in a wider scope, to revisit existing paradigms to clarify the limi-tations and bottlenecks, and eventually to identify future research directionstowards sustainable manufacturing. Within the context, this chapter focuses moreon Reconfigurable and Cloud manufacturing system paradigms, and highlights thefuture endeavors towards better sustainability.
