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...
