Operation Model for Green Manufacturing in the Electronic Industry
To help electronic manufacturers implement their green manufacturing (GM) strategies more friendly to environment and more effectively in saving resources, an operational GM model is proposed based on systematical analyses of each stage of the electronic product life cycle including material selection, design, production, use, end-of-life product disassembly and recycling, etc. This model consists of three levels-supply chain, enterprise and workshop and each level deals with different issues. Supply chain level focuses on manufacturing plants and remanufacturing plants based on the analysis of the whole supply chain-raw materials supply, production and marketing, etc. Enterprise level consists of GM implementation motivation, enterprise strategies, system implementation, supporting elements such as information systems. Based on analysis of the main resources and environment problems, workshop level mainly includes green manufacturing process such as lead-free soldering, process improvement, process monitoring and data acquisition, etc.
