Chapter 1

Engineering sustainability

Urmila Diwekar,    Vishwamitra Research Institute, Crystal Lake, IL, USA

Sustainability analysis is, by definition, multi-disciplinary. In this chapter, we present engineering sustainability by using various systems analysis approaches from different disciplines. Sustainability starts with green manufacturing and extends to industrial networks and then to the ecosystem. These systems are complex and extend boundaries of current analysis frameworks. Uncertainties exist at every stage of analysis, and dealing with uncertainty in a systematic way is necessary. Analysis approaches from optimization, social science, and financial literature are used to solve problems related to sustainability.
