Abstract

This paper, based on a current research project, describes the development of a system that addresses the issue of the prognosis of energy efficiency. The energy consumption in production is determined very early in the product development process by designers and engineers, for example through selection of raw materials, explicit and implicit requirements concerning the manufacturing and assembly processes, or through decisions concerning the product architecture. Today, developers and engineers have at their disposal manifold design and simulation tools which can help to predict the energy consumption during operation relatively accurately. In contrast, tools with the objective to predict the energy consumption in production and disposal are not available. This paper presents the development and realization of a system which is integrated in a commercial CAD system and supports an early evaluation of the energy spent during the production of a product.
