    Improving Ovarall Performance of Factories
    - Launch of ENERGY CLOUD FactoryTM -


    To maintain global competitiveness, it is necessary for companies to not only provide appealing products and services, but also differentiate them in consideration of quality, cost, and delivery (QCD) of energy usage such as the reduction of CO2 emissions in the process, in addition to QCD of manufacturing. The ENERGY CLOUDTM Service is a comprehensive energy solution service provided by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), and ENERGY CLOUD FactoryTM is its factory-focused package. We use AI&IoT technologies to integrate MHI's expertise in manufacturing and energy usage with ENERGY CLOUD FactoryTM and have been promoting overall optimization including individual factory optimization and global corporate management for domestic and overseas bases with no limitations from regionalism. This report introduces the ENERGY CLOUDTM Score, which is a unique KPI (key performance indicator) developed for this purpose, and its related display system.
