Abstract

The paper addresses the issue of energy efficiency as an important topic in sustainability in manufacturing. Against the background of a necessary holistic system understanding and derived research demand, an innovative energy flow oriented manufacturing system simulation approach is presented. Besides the description of the conceptual approach, the applicability and the potentials of usage are shown in two different case studies.
