Over the last 50 years the world’s population and industrialization have soared leading to increased resource use, pollution and waste, and in turn to problems including raw materials shortage and unsustainable increases in landfill areas environmental, social and economic expectation stakeholders of the company every day more and more. Designing products with reuse at end of life in mind is a key strategy towards these requirements like other manufacturers, producers of parts with many challenges faced in fulfilling these expectations. One of the challenges is how to establish sustainable production at the company, whose goal is research. This study was conducted in several stages, after the identification of sustainable production methods, utilizing the technique of meta-synthesis methods are combined. Then, using interpretive structural modeling, the establishment of the appropriate model for the industry is presented. In this article we cluster sustainability production and sustainable optimization in production in two separate parts. And look at some research in this field of study.
