Abstract

Sustainability/sustainable development (S/SD) is considered as one of the major drivers of next industrial revolution as so called “Industry 4.0”. Incorporating the concepts of S/SD in teaching Engineering courses especially Industrial Systems Design courses is very highly appreciated through discussing, analyzing requirements and assessing the S/SD index for the manufacturing/productive plants. This incorporation was followed by designing process starting from analyzing the product design and architecture among designing the manufacturing system (either processing and/or assembly) and reconfiguration; economic justification and how to make the industrial systems more sustainable through S/SD assessment. The results show that incorporating S/SD concepts in teaching Industrial systems design courses is not difficult and the students are more willing to understanding the new concepts regarding S/SD although the course was offered in the last year (senior students).
