An algorithm for the order entry system of a cold rolling mill is developed. Given a client order for coils of steel the algorithm computes the optimal number and weights of supply slabs. Therefore supply weight intervals between the successive production operations are constructed. The influences of the seperate input variables on the computed supply of slabs are transparent.
