Enterprise-wide optimization in steelmaking and metals production

Significantly improve production planning and optimization across several metal manufacturing facilities in real time

ABB AbilityData Analytics Platform for metals is the digital solution that allows metals producers to obtain a centralized overview of production information from several metals manufacturing facilities in one place and in real-time.

Information is collected from both ABB and non-ABB systems and visualized in flexible, customizable dashboards that provide the basis for faster and more data-driven decisions with the potential to significantly improve planning and optimization.

The enterprise wide optimization (EWO) of steelmaking and metals manufacturing with multi-level, hierarchical structure improves understanding of complex interrelations of energy flows, operational modes and different aspects of coordination between multiple processing units.
