For many processes it can be obvious what variables should be the primary drivers of the process, but it can be very difficult to prove. To optimize a process it is important to try and reduce the overhead loads by identifying which loads should match the variability of the process and its output and ensure their operation is aligned. The energy performance of a paint shop at an automotive assembly plant was assessed to help management identify opportunities for operational efficiencies from waste energy reduction. As part of the internal process review, electrical sub-metering had been installed to measure consumption at the end use level.
