  • Seeing means understanding! By visually presenting the clients overall production process or the product life cycle you ensure that operations managers as well as the corporate managers are on the same page. Showing the energy and material flows in a model helps to establish a systems understanding that encompasses all departments and provides clear visualizations of improvement potentials. Results can be communicated quickly and concisely to the client. 

  • 3-in-1 resource efficiency: With Umberto, you have the opportunity to combine the results of an energy and material balance with economic and ecological indicators, thus providing a better basis for advising your clients. By integrating a cost analysis, you can also convince the controlling department at the same time.

  • Easy integration of Excel data: Including existing data collected by your client in the material flow model is an easy task. With the Umberto Live Link you can link cell values from Excel files directly into your model. This makes the handling of the repeating client projects very easy. If, for example, the numbers for production volume or materials use change in the spreadsheet, the data is automatically updated within the Umberto model.
