PSI has been charged by the Canadian Dofasco Inc. with the delivery of a complete Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for all production areas from hot rolling to finishing at the site in Hamilton, Ontario.
Dofasco will receive a fully integrated solution for the entire process from the management level to production. The new production management system includes the functional areas Production Execution System (PES) and Advanced Line Sequencing (ALS) of the PSImetals vertical industry solution. Start of operations for the solution is scheduled for the first half of 2010.
PSImetals was selected by Dofasco to replace a large component of the legacy manufacturing systems. The scope covers hot band inventory to final finishing operations in order to simplify the business processes.
With the Dofasco MES contract, PSI has obtained an important follow-up contract from a leading international company in the steel industry. Only last year did Dofasco decide in favor of a logistics system on the basis of PSImetals.
PSI AG develops and integrates individual solutions, on the basis of its own software, for the management of energy networks (electricity, gas, oil, water, heat), cross-company production management (steel, mechanical engineering, automotive, logistics) and infrastructure management for telecommunications, transport and safety. PSI was founded in 1969 and currently employs more than 1,000 persons in the group.
