The implementation of the Advanced Information Systems (AIS) Steelplanner MES system for Rizhao Steel’s 2,150mm hot strip mill in China was finished by Siemens China in July 2009.

The Steelplanner MES solution covers the entire business process, ranging from entering orders to dispatching the finished products.

On the planning side, the system covers production and quality planning as well as production scheduling.

The acquired production data is further used for production, quality control and planned-versus-actual comparison.

‘With this system’s quality planning and comparison mechanism base on configurable rules, we can define flexible rules according to changing market requirements, thus significantly reducing operators’ workloads, speeding up the process and ensuring accuracy against manual operation at the same time,’ said Chen Tong, leading engineer of the quality department.

The MES system also provides fast and reliable data covering order status, material consumption, output and stocks in order to support enterprise information management with existing ERP and logistics systems.
