Computer control of strip and plate rolling equipment requires the use of a predictive -adaptive mathematical model of the process and of the equipment. The purpose of the predictive portion is to compute the process parameters, given the desired mechanical and metallurgical properties and the final dimensions of the product along with its initial metal­lurgical make-up. The adaptive part should be designed to make use of the results of the predictive model, analyze them in combination with data supplied by the sensors and monitor and correct the settings of the mill parameters during rolling. Further, it should have a learning component, storing all relevant information during production runs, for future use.
