Abstract

The automobile manufacturer has been regarded as a great consumer of energy resources and an important origin of carbon emission. Hence, the research on the control strategies of carbon emission is of significant importance to help to save energy and mitigate carbon emission. This paper proposes a logistics and manufacturing management framework of the automobile manufacturer from the viewpoint of energy conservation and emission reduction. Firstly, we ascertain the carbon emission boundary based on three management phases of the automobile manufacturer: the process of the logistics of raw materials and components, the manufacturing process and the waste disposal. Then, based on the analysis of details of energy consumption and carbon emission, we identify several important management problems confronting the automobile manufacturer. Furthermore, we propose some planning and scheduling models towards these management problems by balancing the economic and environmental considerations.
