MILWAUKEE, Feb. 7, 2011 - Rockwell Automation has developed a free, first-of-its-kind online tool that gives a manufacturer a complete analysis of its current water, air, gas, electric and steam (WAGES) management performance, as well as a clear understanding of how its operating strategies compare with peers in both the same industry and across other sectors. The tool uses a 20-minute online assessment to generate a real-time report outlining a facility’s competitive WAGES management baseline. The results allow employees at all levels of the business to identify and implement strategic changes, and to set improvement goals both for single facilities and across their entire organization.

“Many manufacturers are not aware of how much energy their machines and facilities are consuming at a given time, and how that behavior compares to peers in their industry,” said Randy Selesky, vice president of Power and Energy, Rockwell Automation. “The Energy Evaluator tool offers insight into

current WAGES management strategies and allows users to identify meaningful changes to help lower their overall energy costs and make them more competitive in the marketplace.”

“Due to variability in demand, availability and costs, manufacturers are recognizing the need to manage natural resources like electricity, water and gas more effectively,” said Tom Fiske, senior analyst, ARC Advisory Group.  “Unfortunately, most companies don’t have a detailed perspective on usage of these scarce resources and where opportunities exist to improve operations and their bottom line. Tools like the Energy Evaluator can provide a first step toward a continuous improvement process that optimizes WAGES resource utilization throughout the enterprise.”

The tool is based on the Rockwell Automation Industrial GreenPrint methodology, which is designed to provide manufacturers with a customized, strategic roadmap for industrial WAGES resource management. The Rockwell Automation Industrial GreenPrint methodology consists of four stages - “Awareness,” “Efficiency,” “Optimization” and “Aggregation” - which help companies transform their practices and production, improving profitability and enabling supply chain optimization.

The Rockwell Automation Energy Evaluator tool is available at www.rockwellenergyevaluator.com. The report generated by the tool can be exported into Excel, PDF or printable HTML formats to allow for easy internal sharing and manipulation of data to visualize the impact of operational and behavioral improvements. Users also can continuously access their report and update information to track their progress. Rockwell Automation Industrial GreenPrint consultants are available to help analyze results and identify customized, holistic strategies for implementing improvements.

For more information on the Rockwell Automation Energy Evaluator tool, please visit www.rockwellenergyevaluator.com, or attend the Rockwell Automation press conference at the ARC World Industry Forum on Monday, Feb. 7 from 4:30 to 4:55 p.m. in the Coral A ballroom at the Renaissance at Seaworld Hotel in Orlando, Fla.
