A.2 Criteria of **Energy imputation by machine** (Continued)
i) The criterion used for the distribution of the energy costs must be reviewed.
ii) Prior to making changes to the allocation of energy costs, Controlling must verify that the increased allocation criteria is justified according with the production made in the machine (i.e. that the increase of consumption is related to the production and the energy consumption of the new equipment).
Explanation: Sounds to me like they do not have any way of actually MEASURING the power consumption for each machine, so they are just calculating it, probably based on history except for the new machine. Especially later, where it says, "Before making changes to the energy allocation.." sounds like accountants speaking.
