Press release from: Advanced Information Systems sa

With a current production of 3 millions of tons per year, Dongbu Steel is one of Korea’s leading steelmakers. Using state-of-the-art equipment, in-depth industrial know-how, and extensive expertise, Dongbu Steel's goal is to create the highest quality product while exceeding customer expectations.

In 2009, Dongbu Steel is completing construction of a brand new mini-mill. In order to benefit from AIS expertise in this area, Dongbu Steel selected AIS among numerous providers for the mid-term and short term scheduling of the new plant.

SteelPlanner will build mid-term mini-mill schedules taking into account all major constraints of casting and milling processes. From the mid-term results, SteelPlanner’s mini-mill scheduler, SigmaPlanner, will build day-to-day schedules with the objective to maximize production and customer satisfaction.

Mr. Lee, Project Manager at Dongbu Steel says:
“We have a long experience in cold mill area for 30 years, but we are novices in hot mill area. Therefore, we wanted a proven solution for planning and scheduling of our mini-mill. In order to reduce the trial and error that comes from being novice, the proven solution specified for steel, especially for mini-mill, was needed. Finally, we discovered the proven solution provider. We believe that AIS is the best provider and partner of verified solutions, which has much experience in the steel industry.”

The project, started in Q1 2009, is due to go live together with the mill in July 2009.

AIS is a leading supplier of planning and scheduling solutions for the Metals Industry with many references of its SteelPlanner® family of products worldwide. AIS solutions increase the efficiency of expensive heavy equipment by optimizing capacity planning and production schedules. Numerous references all over the world confirm the effectiveness and reliability of the SteelPlanner® solutions.

The international SteelPlanner® competence network of the AIS group has over 600 IT and process engineers.
