Abstract

This paper aim to conduct a pilot study in India process industry for sustainable machining process design. A survey questionnaire was framed at five point likert type scale. Respondents were asked to five elements related to sustainable machining process design (SMPD) Fifty responses was collected from various process industries. Simple statistics mean, standard deviation, correlation and t test is applied for the analyse survey responses. It is evident that the Energy efficiency during the process, Vegetable based cutting fluid and machining process utilisation are more emphasised by the companies and the other factors like Waste minimization and cryogenic machining require more focused on it. One sample t test it is evident that Energy efficiency during the process (SMPD5) (t = 6.194) is the most important factor which is highly adopted by the process industry in practice.
