Get more value from your data

In order to create a basis for all digitalization applications and to finally obtain added value from data, the plant data must be available in a structured, well-organized form. For this purpose, we offer the "SMS Data Factory" which is used to convert a raw data such as relational data, process data, time codes or files into usable data.

Challenges addressed:

  • Data from different processes transformed to same position of material.
  • Have all relevant product data with good granularity.
  • Make data available to Customer standardized, on demand.
  • Have all processing data of each production route available.
  • Analyze the influence of each processing parameter on the final product quality.
  • Horizontal bi-directional "value chain" of (hot) data for gaining outcomes in asset utilization, efficiency, stability, product quality, safety or delivery performance and take actions based on recommendations supported by ML/AI.

The Data Factory, as a basis and tool for the implementation of the learning steel plant, collects data from the existing plant automation system and makes them available to other applications. It consists of various components that together allow for comprehensive preparation and analysis of all plant data.

The Data Dictionary provides metadata on the data and signals stored in the data factory. These metadata provide assistance in the interpretation of the data, give meaning to the data, describe their characteristics and define rules for the use of the data in external applications. With the help of the SMS Data Factory, all necessary tools can be provided to analyze, classify and understand data.

The Data Factory is a scalable product, which can be used for a specific plant or machine as well as for a complete plant complex or for an entire company. In this way, a specific plant section can be used for starting small and the application can later be extended to further plant components.

Full Material Genealogy

The SMS Data Factory provides the so called Full Material Genealogy which allows consumers of the data to combine and map data of length based product to any other up- and downstream length based product, e.g. map StopperRodPosition and MoldLevel positions of the continuous casting machine with surface inspection system data from the continuous galvanizing line to find non-metallic inclusions.

It furthermore allows to query the parent/child relationship between products.
