Abstract

Integrated management of manufacturing plant’s production and on-site energy supply systems has shown potential economic, environmental and resource efficiency advantages for the industry. However, existing approaches are solely based on pure mathematical models with a high degree of abstraction with limited applicability, which becomes impractical for industrial applications. In this paper a simulation methodology for production parameters selection and on-site energy supply management is presented. In this case, state-based models and operational strategies of manufacturing processes and on-site energy supply options are integrated to represent interdependency between production processes,..
