This paper proposes a framework for addressing challenges of joint production and energy modeling of sustainable manufacturing systems. The knowledge generated is used to improve the technological readiness of manufacturing enterprises for the transition towards sustainable manufacturing. Detailed research tasks of the framework are on the modeling of production, energy efficiency, electricity demand, cost, and demand response decision making. Specifically, the dynamics and performance measures of general manufacturing systems with multiple machines and buffers are modeled to integrate energy use into system modeling. The expressions of electrical energy efficiency and cost are then established based on the electricity pricing profile. Finally, joint production and energy scheduling problem formulations and the solution technique are discussed. New insights are acquired based on the applications of the established model in system parameter selection, rate plan switching decision making, and demand response scheduling. Appropriate implementation of this research outcome may lead to energy-efficient, demand-responsive, and cost-effective operations and thus improve the sustainability of modern manufacturing systems.
