Together with other measures to optimize, constant monitoring of the three stands through iEMDS allowed to save more than 100,000 kWh of electricity in the first year. Integration of intelligent energy management in a large information network BMW Group offers a wide range of further options. The first is the identification and prevention of impending failures and stoppages of robots and equipment. For example, the fact that the equipment starts under constant operating parameters consume more energy is likely to damage or wear caused by such factors as the bearings are too tight, which requires additional energy to rotate.

If the voltage or power consumption is reduced, this may be due to an error in the operating cycle, such as the incorrect use of the material in the gluer. Moreover, accurate information about the energy required to separate production processes can be used in developing the concept of a new generation of robots, or the planning of energy supply systems in new plants BMW Group, such as production Araquari (Brazil) and San Luis Potosi (Mexico).

IEMDS data are stored and analyzed in a central computer center of the BMW Group in Munich, where it is based and where is a large information network. The largest part of the data collected from production, tied to each specific vehicle and consists of programs and diagnostic results 80 control sensors. In addition, collected and general production data, for example, when and where the car was produced and how long it took.
