Sustainable Production Research - a Proposed Method to Design the Measures
Paper i proceeding, 2011

This paper describes a process to develop and apply measures in Sustainable Production Research. Specifically we have: A) Conducted workshops with researchers and industry on sustainability measures and monitored sustainability awareness of the participants through concept maps. B) Developed a proposal for measures based on literature reviews, results from workshops and interviews with researchers. C) Developed a generic method for evaluating sustainability measures related to production over time. 16 sustainability measures were defined as a starting set for the continuous monitoring. Concept mapping showed that participant have an uneven view on sustainability with emphasis on technology.
