Material and Energy Flow Analysis (MFA) can offer a wide list of possibilities. From optimizing resources, increasing efficiency and identifying bottlenecks, to supporting decision-making and the comprehension of relationships in between product stages or processes.
This technique involves modelling the system under observation, which will provide an overview of processes and enables the creation of alternative scenarios in the search for improvements. Cost accounting can also be deployed and linked to the stages of a production system, in order to find critical points for changes.
In this sense, energy and mass balances also help on identifying where waste and losses originate, enabling companies to reach not only better economic performances, but better environmental profiles, as well.
