Computer-aided Lean Management for the Energy Industry

In this new look at energy business operations, an expert team of scientists and engineers provide a road map for transforming energy business capabilities to meet growth imperatives in an increasingly competitive global economy. Extended to the energy industry are the best practices in computational sciences and the lean management principles currently used in other leading manufacturing industries. Computer-aided lean management (CALM) methodology uses the common-sense approach of measuring the results of actions taken and using those measurements to drive greater efficiency.

In their new book, the authors examine how CALM methodology will enable future electric power smart grids with the efficiencies necessary to serve urban expansion. CALM can also serve the oil and gas industry as it deals with dwindling geological supplies and emerging renewable resource competitors. In addition, the book explores the introduction of CALM in countries, such as China, India, and Russia, that are the new business environments of the 21st century and are therefore less inhibited by the need to transition from legacy systems. Developing the business capabilities of CALM will dramatically improve the business operations of all energy companies.
