INTRODUCTION FOR AIR CONDITIONING ENERGY EFFICIENCY & INDUSTRIAL VENTILATION TECHNOLOGY FOR MANUFACTURING PLANTS

From the national perspective, the importance of energy conservation (EC) cannot be overemphasised. The benefits of energy conservation are significant to the nation’s economy and performance in the management of its environment. Improving energy efficiency will lead to significant cost-savings and thereby improving competitiveness. Energy conservation activities will also help to conserve the usage of the nation’s limited natural resources and at the same time reduce the negative environmental impacts. The implementation of energy efficiency (EE) programmes will focus on energy-saving features in manufacturing plants. In this regard, EE features and establishing comprehensive energy management systems will be encouraged. In addition, the manufacturing sector will be encouraged to implement EE measures including improvements in plant, equipment and processes.

 

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is industry designed, to provide a broad understanding of the improvement methodology, concepts, and process. The methodology is presented with case studies and examples drawn from service, business process and manufacturing applications. With a heavy practice orientation, as much as a third of your time will be spent working through interactive practical exercises and assessments. This course is designed as an introduction to concepts and methodology.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

This training program is designed to provide an understanding of engineering related problems related to industry globally and a clear sense of what is required to effectively structure, establish measurements and solve problems. Participants will learn the goals and deliverables behind the solutions. Methodology as well as the most commonly used tools within each phase will be discussed. Participants will also learn how to support a problem solving initiative within their organization.

 

LEEARNING OUTCOMES

On successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to:-

  • Understand the benefits and implications of EC and EE problem solving programs, and relate the concepts to the overall business mission and objectives.
  • Think about his/her organization as a collection of processes, with inputs that determine the output.
  • Use the concept of EC and EE systems engineering problem solving to evaluate the capability of a process or organization.
  • Recognize the engineering problem solving model used to improve processes.
  • Recognize the organizational factors that are necessary groundwork for a successful engineering problem solving program.
  • Integrate the EE and EC systems engineering problem solving program effort with other process improvement initiatives.

 

TRAINING METHODOLOGY

  • The latest educational methods and strategies will be utilized.
  • The course is designed to maximize delegate participation.
  • Questions and answers are encouraged throughout and at the daily wrap-up sessions. This gives participants the opportunity to discuss with others and the presenter their specific problems and appropriate solutions.
  • The course shall be conducted through lectures, case studies, group discussions and exercises to reinforce participant’s learning.
  • Participants are required to bring along their scientific calculators, writing note books / writing material, pens, pencils, rulers etc.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE

Manufacturing, process, executives, managers, maintenance personnel, operational managers etc.

 

COURSE FORMAT

The course consists of formal content presentation interspersed with content quiz sessions. The presenter’s style involves intensive participant participation.
