In this chapter, introduction to sustainable manufacturing and remanufacturing management is given. For sustainable manufacturing, characteristics and technical trends for modern manufacturing processes, sustainable trend for product development lifecycle, and process planning for sustainable manufacturing are briefly discussed. For remanufacturing manufacturing, technologies of recycling and disassembly process planning for Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) are introduced. This chapter is the base for the following chapters of the book for detailed technology development.
