Umberto NXT Efficiency training in Hamburg

2-day practical software training for modelling material and energy flows in a production process....


Transparently model and calculate material and energy flows in the production process and the associated cost - Umberto NXT EfficiencyCalculate the carbon footprint using a database with more than 3000 carbon rucksacks (GWP100a values) - Umberto NXT CO2 Intuitive modelling and calculation of a product life cycle assessment - with Umberto NXT LCACalculate environmental impacts, do Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and improve efficiency in production systems - with Umberto NXT Universal

Optimize your production processes and increase your energy and resource efficiency

Know all material and energy flows in production process system

Graphical modelling of material and energy flows in the production line.

By building the graphical Umberto model you create transparency and gain a comprehensive understanding of the production system at hand. Sankey diagrams help visualizing material and energy flows.

Cost calculation based on the material and energy flow model

Use resources efficiently, reduce costs

Material efficiency is a key to competitiveness of your company when raw material prices are rising. Umberto NXT will show you how resource and energy use are linked and where you are loosing money. Material flow cost accounting (MFCA) is a tool that will help you reduce waste and lower costs.

The software assists you in detecting inefficiencies and improve resource efficiency.

Resource efficiency: KPIs help to reduce material and energy consumption, reduce costs.

Analyse and assess optimization measures

On the basis of the modeled scenarios, you can answer the question what the effects of  improvement measures will be, and whether planned changes will help you reach material and energy saving goals.

Key performance indicators (KPIs) allow assessing the current situation, and comparing it to an optimized, more efficient production system. When will you break-even on the cost for the improvement measures?

Sustainable production is possible!

The models you build of your production process in Umberto link process engineering knowledge with a cost saving and green manufacturing system perspective. Tackle energy recovery, material re-use, recycling, material substitution and waste reduction now. Optimize production in regard to environment and cost.

Sustainable production is possible: Umberto NXT Efficiency will help you achieve.
