Abstract: Manufacturing industry plays an important role in an economy. Its sustainable development requires achieving synergy between the growth of manufacturing industry and environmental protection. The paper tries to use synergetics theory to analyse such issues. It firstly makes a brief introduction about synergetics and synergetic degree model. Next, it determines the subsystems of a sustainable development manufacturing industry system and the order parameters for each subsystem. Then, it makes an empirical analysis, analyses the order degree and the synergetic degree. Finally, it puts forward relative suggestions for improving the sustainable development of manufacturing industry. The findings not only provide us the measures for improving the synergetic degree within a sustainable development manufacturing industry system, but also point out the ways for promoting the sustainable development of manufacturing industry through increasing the efficiency of economy, enhancing the utilisation efficiency of natural resources, and reinforcing innovation of science and technology.

Keywords: sustainable development; manufacturing industry; synergetic degree; order degree; synergetics.
