  • Efficiency in Production: Analyzing Material & Energy Flows and Costs

    Efficiency in Production: Analyzing Material & Energy Flows and Costs

    In this class participants will learn how to do a material and energy flow analysis. Production processes are modeled and flows are visualized to identify inefficiencies. By adding cost information for materials and processes, it is possible to work towards a more efficient and eco-friendly production, by closing loops, reducing material intake, and producting less waste materials. Concepts and methods for an eco-efficient production are explained....

  • Material Flow Cost Accounting (MFCA) according to ISO 14051

    Material Flow Cost Accounting (MFCA) according to ISO 14051

    Material Flow Cost Accounting (MFCA) is described in the ISO 14051 standard. MFCA allows detecting inefficiencies in the production process by systematically looking at wastes and rejects in every production step. It is a great start for systematically tackling resource efficiency in companies.
