Digitalization supported by process knowledge drives the holistic improvement process for advanced steel producers. Four digital focus areas have been identified where digital applications are most impactful for an efficient steel production process: Asset Optimization, Product Quality, Energy and Sustainability as well as Production Planning. Applications in those areas are fed with data from sensors and automation systems, which are combined and preprocessed in a centralized data center. AI & ML help to find pattern in the data that allow forecasting of certain events before they occur. This makes it possible to react on undesired upcoming events and avoid their occurrence or mitigate their risk by suggested counter measures which can be directly executed via the automation systems. Several use case in those areas have been realized which increase efficiency and create value for steel producers.
