PSI has been awarded by ThyssenKrupp Electrical Steel with implementing the production management system PSImetals for the rolling mill and thermal treatment in the electric strip cold rolling mill in
The goals of ThyssenKrupp Electrical Steel are harmonised processes and reduced expenditures in the IT administration by means of a standardised shop-floor system in all the plants. This order was preceded by the proven use of PSI systems at the
The solution is based on the PSImetals components for Production Execution (PES) and Advanced Line Sequencing (ALS). The specific plant programs will be generated and implemented for all the system types in the rolling mill and the tempering. The cross-plant tracking of the production orders, including the production data acquisition and implementation of the quality standards, is handled at the level of the specific plant segment by means of a task-optimised menu. ThyssenKrupp Electrical Steel expects benefits especially in retroactive quality analyses. Every modification and defect, including precise information about where the position of the defect was in which stage of treatment, is shown in a graphical material genealogy for every piece of electrical steel. This quality information forms the basis for the future improvements in the production process.
PSI has now shown us at Isbergues that my colleagues long years of positive experience with PSI at the
The connection to SAP and to the various sub-systems is handled by PSIintegration. The commencement of operations for the rolling mill and thermal treatment is planned for the first half of 2010.
