Book Description :
Green Production Engineering and Management is an interdisciplinary collection of the latest advances from academia and industry on the management of production engineering in a green and responsible way. Background theory, methods, tools and techniques, and case study examples are all combined to make a complete guide for researchers, engineers, and managers. The interdisciplinary approach taken by this book allows a holistic understanding of a complex problem, helping readers with management backgrounds to better appreciate production engineering issues and vice versa. Themes such as social responsibility, green manufacturing, and productivity management are all tackled together, helping the reader see how they are all linked in the industrial environment, and how new advances in one field could lead to benefits in others. Through the interdisciplinary exchange of principles, strategies, models, methodologies, and applications, this book hopes to uncover new ways to manage, think, and understand organizations, making them more strategic and competitive in the markets where they are or which they seek to occupy in the near future. Includes case studies from industry, illustrating how the advances discussed can be applied in the real world. Covers the environmental regulations relevant to green production and will help readers find better ways to meet them. Draws on research from several different disciplines to help readers discover innovative solutions to complex problems.
