Special Session on
Modelling Practical Paradigms of Green Manufacturing Systems
 - MoMa-GreenSys 2019

3 - 5 May, 2019 - Heraklion, Crete, Greece

Within the 8th International Conference on Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems - SMARTGREENS 2019


Sanja Lazarova-Molnar
Faculty of Engineering, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Institute, University of Southern Denmark

Brief Bio
Sanja Lazarova-Molnar is an Associate Professor with the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Southern Denmark, researching in the areas of Modeling and Simulation, and Data Analytics, in various decision support contexts. As of latest, her focus is on data-based reliability modeling and analysis for cyber-physical systems, such as manufacturing systems and smart buildings. Sanja completed her PhD in 2005 at the University in Magdeburg, specializing in the area of Modeling and Simulation. During her PhD, she developed and formalized the proxel-based simulation method, which was superior to discrete-event simulation for certain classes of problems, such as warranty analysis. Sanja’s academic experience spans across four countries: Macedonia, Germany, United Arab Emirates and Denmark, where she has successfully collaborated with industry and academia, authoring more than 80 peer-reviewed research publications.

A major consideration in designing an efficient and non-pollution manufacturing system is its flexible manufacturing availability. Such manufacturing system we named it “Green Manufacturing System”. When a machine or any other hardware component of the system fails, the system reconfiguration is often less than perfect. It is shown that, if these imperfections constitute even a very small percent of all possible system faults, the availability of the system may be considerably reduced. A state is operational when its performance is better than a threshold value. In order to calculate the availability of a manufacturing system, its states (each corresponding to an acceptable system level) are determined. A system level is acceptable when its production capacity is satisfied. As a manufacturing system includes a large number of components with failure/repair processes, the system-level discrete event model becomes computationally intractable. New models, nature inspired models, are needed in order to deal with this complex and stringent issue. Our workshop challenges both authors and auditors to reveal the development stage of the social networks and to anticipate theirs future evolution in respect to technological and environmental changes. We deal with a non-classic workshop but an open minded and open discussion, and free debate one.
