The sustainable energy is the main issue for any smart sustainable multi-stage production system (SSMSPS). A basic production system can be converted to a sustainable smart production system with some major technological changes, which is the main source for the increase of energy within SSMSPS. For making a sustainable system, the amount of energy consumption and carbon footprint should be reduced with the increasing rate of consuming solar energy. Toward the best strategy for the sustainable energy to control the number of defective items within SSMSPS, this study considers a multi-stage production system. An effort has been made to make the whole production system as sustainable smart production system for reduction of carbon footprint and amount of energy. The total cost of the SSMSPS is reduced based on a classical optimization, which gives quasi-closed-form solutions. An illustrative numerical example is specified to assess the model. The numerical study reveals that the carbon footprint and the energy have been reduced in an optimum level, whereas a major finding is obtained for the smart production system that autonomation policy can be used only when there is a very large amount of trade-off between labor cost and investment for autonomation. Sensitivity analysis and graphical representation are supported by the numerical findings.
