Catherine Cooremans, University of Lausanne
This is a case study applying the Multiple Benefits approach to an metal surface treatment company, First Industries, located in Switzerland. The project involved the replacement of rectifiers with new, highly efficient units. Key multiple benefits identified and valued in the analysis include more stable product quality, higher production capacity (higher accuracy), space gain, reduced raw material use, less material waste along with reduced energy, cooling water and labor costs.
