Abstract

Industrial process chains can consist of differing sub-process-chains with varying degrees of complexity and dynamic behavior. This fact makes it difficult to compare measures for enhancing the energy and resource efficiency of such systems. As a prerequisite a common basis for assessing the relevance of improvement measures that take effect on different system levels needs to be established. Against this background the paper proposes a hierarchical evaluation scheme for the aluminum die casting process chain that addresses the aforementioned process attributes in terms of data accuracy, dynamic behavior of system elements on different levels or the system as a whole.
