Iron- and steelmaking processes involve various levels of complexity from continuous to batch operation, from physical deformation to chemical reactions, and from reduction to oxidation, just to name a few. Every day, plant managers, process engineers and operators must make timely decisions to address production, quality and cost issues that are often contradicting each other, while adhering to a high standard of safety and environmental requirements. It is not an easy task even with assistance of today’s advanced process control systems.
