Systematic Approach for Energy-Supply-Orientated Production Planning

Authors: G. Reinhart, F. Keller

Abstract:

The efficient and economic allocation of resources is one main goal in the field of production planning and control. Nowadays, a new variable gains in importance throughout the planning process: Energy. Energy-efficiency has already been widely discussed in literature, but with a strong focus on reducing the overall amount of energy used in production. This paper provides a brief systematic approach, how energy-supply-orientation can be used for an energy-cost-efficient production planning and thus combining the idea of energy-efficiency and energy-flexibility.

Keywords: Production Planning, Production Control, Energy-Efficiency, energy-flexibility, energy-supply
