Unformatted text preview: ould ask, for a given new oven's cost and efficiency, how low could energy prices be and still have the RoI be attractive? Or, during the equipment procurement process, the purchaser might be required to right size and specify the energy efficiency of process equipment. " Quantifying the impact of manufacturing process design changes: This thesis fo- cused mainly on optimizing the use of equipment within the constraints of existing manufacturing processes and procedures. Additional effort could be made into the potential energy savings from modifying the process parameters themselves. For example, in the context of the Oil Room processes, this would involve modifying the length and temperature required for vacuum bakes of specific products. However, process design changes would also need to involve design engineers, likely increasing the complexity of the project. * Local social factors regarding energy management: It was observed that some areas at the IADC (namely CCA) has been able to develop strong social and organizational norms regarding energy management that other areas in the same facility lacked. These norms were...
