A Method to Identify Energy Efficiency Measures for Factory Systems Based on Qualitative Modeling

Energy efficiency is an important objective for industrial enterprises. Since the energy consumption of a factory is mainly influenced during early planning phases, there is a need for methods and tools to support the integration of the objective energy efficiency into factory planning. The goal of this thesis is to develop a method to identify energy efficiency measures for factory systems which can be applied preferably during factory planning. While existing methods for energy efficiency improvement usually contain a quantitative assessment, this work suggests the identification of measures based on qualitative models of the factory system. The main support is to generate solution approaches for increasing energy efficiency. The research contribution lies in a method that contains qualitative description concepts for both factory planning tasks and energy efficiency knowledge, an algorithm to suitably assign energy efficiency measures to factory planning tasks, and a procedure model for the method’s application.

Factory Planning Manual - Situation-Driven Production Facility Planning

This book describes the factory planning process with its manifold practical characteristics. Previous planning approaches only emanate from the product model. Future plannings need to allow for dissimilarity of an individual factory more strongly, i.e. the factory will feature even more individual characteristics according to its position in the value-added chain. With the methodology presented in the book new factory types can be realized according to the respective requirements. The described methodology has been developed by the authors. Being an extendible concept, it is very useful for the permanent excess planning, rescheduling and replanning of factories.
