Evaluation of energy and resource efficiency supported by enterprise modeling
Experiences from application cases and their significance for the multi-perspective modeling approach
The multi-perspective modeling method is an enhancement of enterprise modeling and will enable understandable, operational views ("perspectives") on sustainable value creation. The goal is to allow all stakeholders to make decisions towards the sustainability in their context, ranging from individual enterprise decisions up to cooperation strategies. As known, the sustainability is based on the environmental, economic and social dimensions. The energy and resource efficiency is an essential subset within the sustainability context that affects mainly the first two dimensions. This paper presents an enterprise modeling driven and supported analysis of energy and resource efficiency, which was performed at several small and medium sized enterprises. The experiences gained from this application case are described and their consequences for the multi-perspective modeling method are argued.
