International Journal of Sustainable Manufacturing (IJSM)

IJSM addresses elements of science-based sustainability principles and their applications in innovative products, processes and systems for manufacturing, highlighting economic, environmental and societal aspects of sustainability. This covers the biocomplexity of the environment and associated technological challenges facing the needs of society for economic growth and prosperity as applied to design and manufacturing of discrete products. Product lifecycle issues involving use of materials/resources for sustained quality requirements and perpetual material flow form a basis for sustainability applications in product design/manufacture.
