Journey to Intelligent Process Management: Case study of Fives and Arvedi AST

Wednesday 19th June 16:45 - 17:15


In the fast-paced steel production world, staying competitive is an ongoing challenge. Arvedi AST (Acciai Speciali Terni), a leading European stainless steelmaker, has chosen Fives to take a digital step forward to transform their steel process management. Eyeron®, an intelligent quality management system was installed across the entire integrated plant of Arvedi AST with the aim of streamlining the production process and taking quality management to a higher level.

While implementing smart process rules and analyzing offline accumulated database, significant process improvements and savings were realized. Immediate coils quality grading helped to improve cut management, while dividing coils into head, body, and tail with different treatments regarding their process histories and orders. Moreover, outstanding process improvements were made while covering different bottleneck topics along the whole process.
