A major consideration in designing ae 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. To analyze the system with failure/repair processes, Petri nets and Markov models are often used. 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.
