Material efficiency

General description

Material efficiency is a description or metric which expresses the degree in which raw materials are consumed, incorporated, or wasted, as compared to previous measures in construction / manufacturing projects or physical processes.  Making a usable item out of thinner stock than a prior version increases the material efficiency of the manufacturing process.  (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Material_efficiency)


Specifics for Project ENEPLAN | ENergy Efficient Process pLAnning system

Description However, one of the main driving forces in today’s production is the environmental friendliness and the energy efficiency of the production itself.
 Monitoring Technologies Result description Motivation / Need: MetaCAM tool uses a number of theoretical process simulators to calculate energy efficiency for every manufacturing process.
