Lack of flexibility in case of power shortages
Without awareness and knowledge of real energy consumption, i.e. lack of full control over the media it is also hard to avoid negative effects on production due to temporal and unexpected power provision reduction.
No one source of truth about full utilities usage
Most of the available product data is unstructured. The right quality of unified data is the key to achieving energy efficiency and understanding of energy, thus problem-finding savings opportunities.
Energy consumption out of control
No detailed information about energy consumption increases the risk of exceeding the set limits. It thus may lead to increased costs and high penalties. Need a "fuse" that would alert when the energy consumption exceeds the assumed safety threshold.
Challenges in the pursuit to sustainability and Industry 4.0
A green product is a product that has been designed with an eco-friendly approach. It should use especially less energy. The modernization of production in line with the development of Industry 4.0, is not only a process of industrialization and digitization, but also a process of sustainable development.
