FELTEN study: energy reduction achieved in the strategic priorities a front position two of five manufacturing companies have realized the first operational activities or do they have in designing concrete Serrig, June 20, 2012 – energy transformation seems to have arrived already largely in the company of manufacturing industries. According to a study of the FELTEN group this theme has taken a front position in the ranking of the strategic priorities on the production achieved. It is now neck and neck with the aim to increase the efficiency in the production. Then 59 and 57 per cent of the over 250 companies surveyed currently a high importance these two objectives, apply followed by the improvement of production management (53 percent) and process optimization, which is a high priority for every second manufacturing plant. The flexibility of production and production quality can be found on the other courses of the strategic objectives. Despite the clear commitment to building energy-saving conditions in the production, but only every seventh has Companies in this regard the first operational measures taken.

However, they are in another 29 percent in the planning. The planning for a green production strategy currently also 37 percent are employed, while only one-fifth of the companies has launched no energy-saving initiatives in the production or planned. These results are consistent with the findings from our study and our impressions in consultations”, see Werner Felten, Managing Director of the FELTEN group, a significant change in the strategic priorities in the production industry. The energy costs are becoming a very significant cost factor, which therefore requires a very special attention.” But the survey also shows, that the way required to not only clear confessions, but an internal energy revolution has many hurdles to overcome. Establishing an operational challenge the largest it according to 73 percent of the companies surveyed System for energy management dar.

A clearly perceived time pressure in the planning and implementation is known as a major difficulty by 62 percent, as the investment resources necessary for these projects in connection with the green production projects. What is interesting is that a the related modernisation planning of the production machines of comparatively only 44 percent of the company is represented as a problem. Greater efforts make them according to the development of the strategy and the design of energy-saving production processes (57 percent). The companies see an only small hurdle, however, employees: their acceptance of a stronger focus on cleaner production conditions is evaluated in large majority as positive. Production conditions must be accentuated scratch given the needs, specifically to focus on energy management. This involves necessarily significant challenges, which are to deal with”, emphasizes Felten. On the other hand “he refers to the perspectives: cost savings are purely economic in quite considerable size to achieve, therefore these investments justify regardless of the nowadays also very important environmental aspect in any case.” FELTEN group: The FELTEN group is an internationally operating software and consulting firm that develops solutions to optimise processes for all production areas and according to international quality standards.
