    Production Management from Melt Shop to Market

Increasing variety of orders? Decreasing quantities per order? Shorter delivery times? The production process in metals is driven by a cumulative complexity. Therefore real time tracking with integrated operational quality processes becomes more substantial.

Be it feedstock quality, routine material handling or correct execution of the individual process steps in the plant/ at shop floor level – PSImetals Production continuously captures, controls and monitors all production data and processes in metal production. Pre-defined key performance indicators (KPI) – optionally as realtime information or as a trend – enable the online evaluation of current and future production situations.

This enables significantly improved process efficiency, higher yield and cost savings.
