This paper takes carbon footprint of the machining workshop as the research object, and carbon footprint connotations of energy, material, and environment were defined, and then standard carbon emission formula of workstation was made with the thought of industrial engineering and the practical production requirement of workshop. We took standard carbon emission as comparison object and constructed uncertain measure model of carbon emission in workshop to describe the control level of workshop carbon footprints quantitatively under uncertainty. A diagnosis method of the station carbon footprints was proposed. The application of this method in a machining workshop demonstrated its effectiveness and feasibility. This diagnosis method on energy saving and emission reduction can provide instruction for optimal control and management of workshop carbon footprint and provide the solution for low carbon production mode. It is an innovative application of industry engineering basic theory in carbon footprint control and management under uncertainty, so it can provide theory and technology support for energy saving and emission reduction, cost saving and production safety.
