Unformatted text preview: herefore, the impact and opportunity
around right-sizing equipment was assessed on an analytical level using data gathered in the facility
over the course of the research period. This portion did not include a field experiment but instead
relied on projections based on observations and data gathered in the field and from Subject Matter
Experts (SME) input.
Finally, as stated before, all research conducted at the facility was focused on making more
efficient use of electricity in manufacturing processes. 4.2 Data Collection and Analysis All interviews, data collection, and analysis was performed at Raytheon, primarily at the IADC site. 4.2.1 Electricity Data Electricity data was gathered through a variety of methods. A brief discussion of these data collection
methods, and the existing methodology at the site at the start of research is warranted, as the
hypothesized value of electricity measurement is a major component of this thesis, and a variety of
data collection methods were utilized depending on the equipment under study.
