Abstract in another language

Traditionally, manufacturing companies are mainly optimising their process efficiency with lean management approaches like reducing the seven wastes. In times of rising energy and material costs due to limited primary energy and raw material availability, small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) in particular are facing the challenge to increase their energy efficiency. Analyzing the manufacturing costs of SMEs during the European research project “Methods for Efficiency” (M4E) clearly revealed that a reduction of energy costs is possible as soon as the machinery and the factory infrastructure of these companies are specifically set-up or reengineered for the purpose of energy efficiency. Hence, to enable SMEs to gain transparency in terms of the energy consumption of both their machinery and auxiliary production equipment, a proceeding was developed for assessing their energy efficiency in detail. First component-wise power measurements of the pneumatic systems, lighting and various machinery in different operation modes such as ramp-up, idle or production mode were conducted. Based on these gathered data guidelines are developed to increase the energy efficiency of manufacturing processes which use yet existing machinery and systems. This affects the energy-efficient operation as well as reengineering and remanufacturing of equipment.
