With an ongoing increase in industrial energy demand anticipated in Europe over the next twenty years, energy efficiency continues to be an important focus within industrial environments. As consumer products have become more complex, the complexity of the manufacturing process chains and their energy consumption has also increased. This has resulted in manufacturing process chains which demand more resources such as power, water, natural gas, and industrial gases with increasing consumption. Consequently, energy management standards are being adopted by industries to focus on improving this capability through management systems. Research to date has concentrated on the development of approaches to characterise discrete manufacturing equipment and associated manufacturing states.
