The Tata Steel integrated steel plant in Port Talbot collects vast amounts of data in the various works areas. The Hot Mill is the bottleneck of the plant and if manipulated properly, the data generated can be a gold mine of opportunity. Data is stored in various formats in huge quantities, calling for a need to use novel analysis techniques in order to functionalise it.
The idea is to process the data & display it in such a way that it improves decision making processes for the day technical team.
One second of saved processing time per bar results in a £1M benefit in speed of work, thus this type of work can yield huge cost benefits!
