Special aspects

Introduction

The five previous modules provided basic and advanced knowledge concerning usage of water in laundries, machine technology, washing processes, application of detergents and energy (in general and specifically for laundries). Learning contents of the modules are based on latest developments in the laundry sector. Implementation of sustainable production is in the focus of this teaching and learning tool.

Efficient production is more than application of machines, water, detergents and energy. “The whole is more than sum of its parties“ (Aristoteles, 60 BC). Efficient production is to use resources and control processes optimally.  That means, efficient production is sustainable production.

Optimal application of resources and controlling are linked directly and enhance each other reciprocally as well as production capacity (see module 1: Usage of water and module 5: Energy!). Within this module, all special aspects of a sustainable production shall be taught with main focus on validation, monitoring, controlling and documentation as well as complete (integrated) management systems.

Those processes boost besides efficiency, reliability and warranty of textiles availability to the customer – thus overall quality of production processes.
