Abstract

Sustainability performance targets of products and production systems can be seen as non-functional requirements. Current manufacturing systems do not take sustainability metrics into account during production, rather sustainability performance evaluation is performed a posteriori. This research analyzes how standard manufacturing execution system (MES) functions can support building more sustainable products by extending the functions with relevant sustainability questions. We identify an approach for addressing sustainability for eleven MES functions.
