Energy-efficient production has become more and more important over the last few years due to increasing scarcity of resources and increasing energy costs. While large companies already focus on energy-efficiency in production, small and medium enterprises (SME) still lack suitable support in realizing better energy-efficiency. This paper describes an IT system that aims to support SME in order to realize energy savings in production and to thereby help to increase SME competitiveness by reducing energy costs. The system is designed to support both the planning and execution phases of production and is realized utilizing affordable mobile devices. This allows for usage of the system at the shop floor.
