Sustainability in manufacturing systems is an urgent requirement for today's manufacturing companies. This paper focuses on sustainable manufacturing operations scheduling, a subject which has been attracting increasing interest from researchers in recent years. This paper presents a state of the art review of this field. First, it characterizes what can be considered as sustainable manufacturing operations scheduling, and introduces the relevant challenges and issues. An analysis of the literature is then proposed, and organized according to three keys. The shortcomings in the literature are then discussed in depth, and subsequently urgent problems that must be solved through research in order to meet industry requirements are pointed out.
