An Application of Systems Modelling in Steel Production Scheduling
Modern steel production is a complex operation with literally hundreds of separate, though operationally related processes. As a production industry with a high volume, total profits depend heavily on efficient operation on the margin. A key factor in efficient operation is the ability to schedule individual operations toward a common goal of optimal production.
