Sustainable manufacturing provides technological and management solutions by creating sustainable value in manufacturing. Implementing these solutions, while balancing economic, environmental, and social impacts is a challenge. This paper presents a novel manufacturing architecture for sustainable value creation and its application for products, processes and services. This method combines analyses and syntheses using new attributes for engineering practice by applying the principles of sustainability. These attributes accomplish multiplier effects in transforming engineering programs, implementing and adapting methodologies, and thus increasing awareness about the challenge of implementing sustainable manufacturing principles. The architecture is demonstrated in a case study on power equipment manufacturing.
