Features of our resource & energy efficiency software

Easy integration of existing primary data

Have you already collected data in Microsoft Excel in order to analyze the resource efficiency of your production? Wonderful, then you have already created the basis.

  • Linking Microsoft Excel cell values with Umberto model
  • Automatic update when cell values are changed
  • Easy adaptation of relevant parameters such as quantities or material and energy consumption
  • Possibility of an individual interface connection with SAP or other systems

We will gladly give you a live demonstration in our web presentation: ▶ View dates

Graphical visualization of production processes

With Umberto you can digitally map all energy and material flows and keep an eye on costs at the same time. Sankey diagrams visualize the material flows in your production processes in a particularly clear way.

  • Creating transparency of production processes and material flows
  • Comprehensive understanding of the production system by all involved parties
  • Linking of process knowledge with a holistic system perspective
  • Resource-efficient production through process optimization with regard to environment and costs

Calculate the true value of material losses

With the help of integrated Material Flow Cost Accounting (MFCA), the software also shows "hidden" costs. The MFCA approach enables you to achieve higher material efficiency and thus save energy and costs.

  • Detection of material losses in the production process
  • Proportionate allocation of costs to losses of material (and possibly energy) instead of mere allocation to products
  • Calculation of the savings potential, if the losses would not occur at all

Analyse and assess optimization measures

How promising are the measures to increase resource efficiency? Based on scenarios, you can compare the effectiveness of planned improvements in your production system.

  • Use KPIs to analyze and evaluate the current status and planned future scenarios
  • Evaluation of the savings potential in order to set realistic savings targets
  • Automated scenario analysis for the simultaneous calculation of several scenarios

    Calculation of the CO2 footprint

    With Umberto Efficiency+ you will not only find potential for material and energy efficiency, but also for reducing CO2 emissions.

    • Fast and uncomplicated calculation of the carbon footprint
    • Global Warming Potential (GWP) factors available in the software
    • Sankey diagram illustration shows hot spots of CO2 emissions

    Tip for the trial version: Calculate one of the sample models and test the Sankey diagram visualization for total flows, costs or climate change (GWP): ▶ Test it now
