The success of organizations operating in complex environments depends on how well its supply chain could adapt to disruptions caused by unanticipated events. Building this resilience requires the capability to identify risks and uncertainties and modeling the impact of them on operations. Both of these have proven to be very difficult to do effectively.(More)
This paper presents a new framework for comprehensively evaluating the sustainability content of a product through Product Sustainability Index (PSI) in terms of all three components of sustainability (economy, environment and society) over its total life-cycle (pre-manufacturing, manufacturing, use, post-use). This method is useful in comparing various(More)
This paper presents quantifiable sustainability elements in manufactured consumer electronic products. A " Sustainability Scoring " method is introduced at the design stage. A new product can be evaluated using this method for its integral elemental and the overall sustainability contents impacting the product when it reaches the end-of-life by considering(More)
Severe plastic deformation (SPD) processes have been used to modify the surface integrity properties of many materials by generating ultrafine or even nanometer-sized grains in the surface and subsurface region. These fine grained materials created by SPD and dynamic recrystallization in a thin layer near the surface usually have higher hardness and(More)
