Broner Metals Solutions, a leading provider of supply chain planning, scheduling and manufacturing execution systems, specifically for the Metals Industry, is to supply its Production Planning and Scheduling solution to Tianjin Tiantie Metallurgical Group (Tiantie) for their major project in Chinas Hebei province.
Tiantie currently produces pig iron and some long products, like merchant bar and narrow strip, but is changing its market focus, and is building a new flat products plant that will eventually replace the existing long products facilities. The first phase of this project will include a new steelmaking and hot rolling plant (HRC) in She city, Hebei province, and this will be followed by a cold rolling plant (CRC) at Tianjin, closer to port facilities.
The Broner solution will be used to manage and control the planning and scheduling of the production for the new flat products facilities, and will be implemented by CISDI, Broners partner in China, and includes Broner Material Planner, Production Planner, Caster Scheduler, Hot Mill Scheduler, Schedule Editor and Melt Shop Control Centre modules.
David Mushin, Chief Executive of Broner Metals Solutions, said, The Tiantie project highlights our growing business in China and is a result of superior solutions for metals manufacturing together with strong local partnerships.
Tianjin Tiantie Metallurgical Group Ltd is one of the top 500 stateowned companies in China producing over 4.3 million tons of raw steel annually. It is headquartered in Tianjin city, while most of its facilities are located in She city in Hebei province.
The new facility in She is a hot-rolling facility with annual production of over 3.8 million tons of steel coils.
