Abstract

Conducting an in-depth analysis and having a detailed understanding of manufacturing procedures help to increase a company's internal resource efficiency. A variety of methods and instruments are used to do this in practice that stem, for example, from production planning, process control, environmental or energy management or lean management. The instruments range from simple checklists to sophisticated software tools. The VDI Centre for Resource Efficiency has made a list of methods and instruments available on their homepage that can be used to increase corporate resource efficiency. This list is aligned with VDI Standard 4801 “Resource Efficiency in small and medium-sized enterprises (SME)” and is always up to date.
