Development and implementation of a procedure for the solution of a 1.5-dimensions of blend problem
Project partner: ZAPP group, Stahlwerk Ergste-Westig GmbH
Project manager: Ingmar Steinzen
Project duration: 01.07.2003 - 01.10.2004
In the context of a co-operation with the steel plants Ergste Westig GmbH, an enterprise of the ZAPP group, a procedure for the solution of a 1.5-dimensionalen of blend problem was developed and implemented prototypically. The developed decisive support system COILOPT was able to do solve the real problem efficiently and allow for calculation of economic comparisons. A significant reduction potential for the blend can be identified, and at the same time reduce costs of the planning expenditure. The system COILOPT is at present operationally used and will be developed further.
