This paper presents an abstract model for production facilities which is supposed to serve as a universally applicable base for the simulation of energy flows in a manufacturing company. Its goal is to enable integrated analysis and simulation, considering production processes, machinery, systems, and buildings as a whole in order to find the best leverage to optimize overall energy consumption. The requirements on the model and its general structure are explained as well as how its parts relate to specific aspects of a production facility. Furthermore, considerations for implementing a complex simulation on its basis are discussed.
