The two main advantages of process management approaches is that they are relatively low-cost and also solicit employee engagement, addressing two barriers commonly cited to energy efficiency programs[3]. Despite the promise and the recent progress, the process management approach to increasing energy efficiency of manufacturing processes needs further development. Specifically, while there has been a variety of tools and high-level frameworks proposed, most of which are covered in Chapter 2.1, best practices and detailed action plans for executing such an approach at the manufacturing cell level have not been described, especially in terms of how to best incorporate energy data and/or energy managers within an operations improvement context[1]. While high-level frameworks are important to set an overall vision and to aid inter-industry communication, the nature of the problem requires the development of a practical, repeatable and flexible approach that will wo...
