  Introduction to the E-learning Scheme


Search the ExBESS web site: 

A good approach for energy management implementation is to use the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Cycle. The PDCA Approach is well known across industry, and most SME managers know it by heart. The PDCA Cycle provides a framework for the continuous improvement of a process or system. The cycle is designed as a dynamic model where the completion of one turn of the cycle flows into the beginning of the next. In order to implement energy management by using the Energy Management model, four different phases have been identified: preparation, analysis, planning and execution. Click on "Energy management model" in the mid ring of the part 'Do' of the dartboard for more information about these phases. In this process of implementation, you will go through this PDCA cycle multiple times. You can find more information when clicking on 'Plan', 'Do', 'Check' and 'Act' in the inner circle of the dartboard.

During the pilot phase of the project, not all area of the E-Learning scheme (dartboard scheme) will be available to the general public. Specifically, the bullseye of the dartboard will be available as well as an ad-hoc benchmarking scheme (not all features of the scheme will be available). The remaining features of the E-Learning scheme will only be available to the companies participating in the pilot phase of the project. Following the end of the pilot phase (30.04.2007), the entire web site will become available to the general public.
