Digital applications for maximum plant efficiency

The steel industry now finds itself in the age of digitalization. High plant availability levels, a consistently perfect plant condition, and maximum product quality are key factors when it comes to optimum plant operation. The demands for more efficient and sustainable production processes are growing all the time, and the higher level of automation calls for modular solutions that create connectivity. The interaction of all modular solutions from SMS digital is bringing plants a step closer to becoming a learning steel plant.

Here, artificial intelligence and machine learning are essential components of sustainable and resource-efficient production.

Industrial digitalization is far more complex than contentional office digitalization. It requires digitalization skills, process and plant know-how. 
At the same time, its added value is far bigger.

Reduce your carbon footprint
Predictive Energy Management

The demand for energy and resources is steadily increasing. Intelligent solutions are needed to achieve a sustainable balance between economic growth and environmental responsibility. Effective energy and sustainability management is therefore of central importance for the metals and process industry and has a decisive effect on its cost efficiency and carbon footprint.

Solutions for optimized production planning
Predictive Production Planning

The dynamic changes in market demands, triggered by the Internet of Things, require considerably shorter modernization cycles as we head towards Industry 4.0. Increasing volumes of data and new means of exchanging information are resulting in closer collaboration between integrated plant and automation system suppliers and plant owners/operators and end users.

Software solutions for quality optimization
Predictive Product Quality

Even today, quality management is not an automated process in most rolling mills. A great deal of time and effort is invested in quality monitoring by plant personnel, for example to determine the exact cause of defects. Deviations in the quality data require the monitoring personnel to take decisions and any relevant action, such as redirecting or, in the worst case, scrapping a coil, which leads to losses.

PREDICTIVE PROCESS CONDITION MONITORING
Predictive Asset Health

Many plant processes in companies have already been digitalized. However, the evaluation of the generated data is very time-consuming. Our smart maintenance solutions make it possible to carry out automatic system-wide analyses, thus improving quality and efficiency. These products and solutions focus on aspects such as plant availability, inventory management, and maintenance planning.
