Abstract

The desire to be environmentally sustainable gives manufacturers the necessary impetus to implement "green" technology that previously may have been regarded as less important. Traditionally, Energy Management System (EMS), which handle energy-related activities within building services, and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), which handle production activities, have been isolated subsystems. Clearly, the integration of EMS-MES offers a compelling opportunity to make important energy-efficient contributions toward manufacturing sustainability. Discrete Event Simulation (DES) has been very valuable for manufacturing applications as an efficient analysis tool to aid problem solving and decision-making. This paper analyzes the requirements of EMS-MES system integration within the framework of DES. A case study of the EMS-MES system integration for precision sand casting production will be explored.
