The Learning Steel PlantDigitalization
Steelmaking in the age of digitalization calls for new approaches. 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. Smart solutions from SMS digital turn your production facility into a learning steel plant. The learning steel plant is our vision of a holistically connected production facility, which uses intelligent pattern recognition algorithms to determine all scenarios in advance, draws the appropriate conclusions from real events, and continually trains and monitors itself by means of artificial intelligence. The concept focuses on forward-looking production planning, product quality assurance and monitoring of the plant condition.
The main task of the learning steel plant is to turn data into information and information into value.
It makes use of all the advantages of innovative technologies to increase its productivity and user-friendliness and has an enormous positive effect on sustainable "green" steel production. In this way, we create a digital ecosystem for our customers to enable them to maximize profit right along the production chain.
From the combination with SMS digital's innovative solutions for data infrastructure, digital products and machine learning resulted in the world's first learning steel mill. As systems supplier for the steel mill complex, SMS group supplied all the equipment, process know-how and automation technology and supported BRS during commissioning.
