The general principle of sustainable manufacturing is to reduce the intensity of materials use, energy consumption, emissions, while maintaining, or improving, the plant profitability and the value of the products. The methodology employed is this course will help to develop sustainable manufacturing evaluation, validate industry practices and use of analytic hierarchy process to obtain a sustainable manufacturing performance.


Managing and learning require continuously measuring of plant performance and operations. If an organization wants to understand where their improvement opportunities, how competitive, verifiable and efficient they are, it’s recommended that they analyze their operating performance.

Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) represent a necessary part of any business aiming for success.
