World’s leading source of manufacturing best practices and technical process efficiency improvement knowledge.

EES uses artificial intelligence and expert system knowledge to generate process efficiency improvement ideas. Cloud-based software. Secure and easy to use. Customized to your processes and systems.  Complete KPI Metrics for operational, financial, and environmental tracking and reporting.  Fast actionable results.


Powerful Technical Tool

EES is powerful and easy to use. Simply answer specific system questions with multiple choice answers. Process improvement ideas are then generated based on artificial intelligence logic and expert system analysis.  Businesses determine which ideas make sense to pursue based on their goals and budget.   With engineering knowledge available at your fingertips, EES makes everyone an expert.


What Type of Questions are Asked?

No privacy, proprietary or financial data needed to answer questions.  Some example questions are shown below to illustrate the data entered into EES:

Air CompressorOptimizationIs there a secondary storage receiver? (Yes,No)
BoilerEnergy SavingsDoes the deaerator have a manual vent control? (Yes,No)
Distillation ColumnOptimizationIs the reboiler return line located at least 12 inches above the column’s high liquid level? (Yes,No)
PumpTroubleshootingDoes the centrifugal pump intermittently lose suction when it rains? (Yes,No)
Reverse OsmosisCapacity IncreaseIs the actual permeate conductivity significantly lower than the required permeate conductivity? (Yes,No)
Spray BoothEmissions ReductionHow frequently is the air flow balanced in the spray booth? (Never,Daily,Weekly,Monthly,Yearly,Other)
Steam DistributionQualityAre the steam traps in the steam mains spaced further than 200 feet apart? (Yes,No)

For the more difficult questions, EES provides detailed information.

For example in the Cooling Tower system with the Water Usage Reduction category the question:  Are cycles of concentration tracked or reported on a regular basis? (Yes,No)

EES also contains helpful information to assist the user in answering the questions, such as:  Cycle of concentration is the ratio of total dissolved solids in the blowdown water divided by the total dissolved solids of the make-up water.


KPI Metrics

EES has built in measurement and tracking capability for 25 key performance indicator metrics. The capability to seamlessly link process efficiency improvement activity to metrics makes it easy for companies to track financial, productivity and environmental results.


Deployment Options

EES Technical Toolbox is easy to use, and you decide the best method to deploy it at your company. We have listed a few options for you to consider.

Engineers and Technical Employees

EES Technical Toolbox is flexible to deploy. You may decide to have one of your employees, such as an engineer or a technical person use the tool. Some companies prefer to use a team approach.

Co-op and Intern Students

Companies may have co-op or interns gather the data. Students will work with various disciplines throughout the plant to identify answers to specific system questions. EES is designed to let students work independently, with the employer providing oversight.

EES Engineering Services

If your time is limited, we can assist you through our Engineering Services option. We provide onsite engineering services customized to help you achieve your specific goals. We can also offer remote and hybrid engineering services to assist our clients.
