"Optimization and performance improving in metal industry by digital technologies"
The project is targeting at resource and energy intensive sectors, which are the steel and nonferrous metals sector. Since these industries have enormous impact to energy and material consumption, and consequently to the environment, improvements of energy and material efficiency represent major positive financial and environmental impacts of the project. The project aims to improve the process performance indicators by retrofitting existing production sites by digitalization technologies and elevating overall digitalization level. Mechanical upgrades of the equipment are not subject of this project.
The project approach is based on three enabling technological areas:
- data collection & sensor technologies,
- tools for data analysis, control and optimization,
- digitalization infrastructure;
In the earliest stages, special attention is given to definition of requirements and specifications.
Developed enabling technologies will enable the digital transformation and optimization of selected production processes coming from steel and nonferrous metals sectors within three case studies.
