Ideally, these approaches should also support participation from senior operations managers, whose collective lack of attention to energy efficiency concerns is known to be an additional major barrier to successful program execution and yet is still an unsolved problem. 1.2 Problem Statement The problem addressed in this research is to develop a practical, repeatable process management approach to increase energy efficiency at the manufacturing cell level (the "shop-floor") that engages employees and managers and is compatible with existing continuous improvement programs. By focusing on process management techniques, we are looking primarily for approaches which do not require replacing existing machinery. 1.3 Thesis Overview This research uses the Raytheon IADC as a model manufacturing plant. The research environment is described in more detail in Section 2.2, but it can be considered a typical manufacturing facili...
