Umberto Case Studies on resource efficiency & process optimization
How is resource efficiency implemented in practice? And how can processes already be optimized in their planning phase? Learn some possible answers to these questions in the best practice examples below. Here you will find a collection of case studies on resource efficiency and process optimization.
Reducing the use of resources in textile filter systems through MFCA
How can resource efficiency be increased in the industrial filter production? The material flow cost analysis (MFCA) of the ZERO Design product line is intended to show whether, where and how resources can be saved in the production process.
Uncovering the causes of phantom bookings through MFCA
How can transparency be increased in a highly complex production process? This question was the reason for the automotive supplier RONAL GROUP to carry out a Material Flow Cost Analysis (MFCA) with the help of the Umberto Software in its light alloy wheel production.
Process Optimization in the Chemical Industry
Ciba Specialty Chemicals (now BASF Schweiz AG) is a leading chemical company. The company used Umberto to optimize processes. By using the method of ECO engineering potentials for system optimizations and savings are systematically identified.
Efficiency increase in low-loss
As part of the EFFIMA support program, the consultants of iPoint used material flow cost accounting (MFCA) to show the fischer group of companies optimization potential in the new production process. By comparing different scenarios, it was possible to identify opportunities for increasing efficiency even in the already low-loss production.
Construction of Semiconductor
The worldwide operating M+W Group was looking for a tool for process and facility planning for the construction of Semiconductor Fabs. With Umberto a scalable and customizable model for calculating costs of semiconductor fabs in the design, construction, and operations stages was developed.
Efficient Waste Treatment
Der Grüne Punkt (the Green Dot) - Duales System Deutschland (DSD), applies Umberto for an overall analysis of energy and material flows. This analysis goes beyond focusing on the actual state in includes scenario calculations and sustainability evaluations.
