Purpose and goal

Develop an overall automation solution, that based on the ordered product properties enables efficient raw material and energy use. The project will lead to a scalable platform for process integration, implemented and evaluated online. The goals are: 1: The platform is developed according to the common demands. 2: Quantified benefits based on tests in production. 3: Potential to use data between different production facilities to improve own production. 4: Generalization of the platform to other processes and industries.

Expected results and effects

The project´s focus, objectives and consortia are expected to enable: - A product that will serve as operation support, planning assistance and procurement support in order to reduce production costs through efficient and sustainable use of raw material and energy. - That approach used leads to a decreased use of virgin materials (alloys) through better use of the available value element in steel scrap. - Functionality of data sharing between systems is analysed and developed from a business perspective (co-operative automation).

Planned approach and implementation

The project duration is two years and is divided into nine work packages. Each work package has a designated project partner who has the responsibility to lead the work package and report to project coordinator. The work packages are divided into four main clusters; Specify, develop, test, Evaluate. These clusters will be developed partially in parallel when it is necessary to reconnect results between clusters and work packages during the project.
