Process oriented energy control and optimization
Energy efficiency is a key driver for increasing manufacturer’s competitiveness. Optimizing energy consumption depends on detailed data such as the consumption of individual machines in each manufacturing process step. Fraunhofer FIT developed such a system based on a service-oriented architecture based middleware.The middleware allows easy and rapid integration of heterogeneous sensors and legacy systems in existing production facilities. The system will be demonstrated using an example production line in the automotive industry.
