Digitalization of the Melting and Casting Area

Consulting | Future-Oriented Digital Solution

This Austrian customer is a globally active and reliable supplier of high-quality castings for demanding requirements. Together with the customer we created a technical specification for a software solution, which closes the gap between plant automation (Level 1) and the ERP system (Level 4) in order to track, control and optimize the metallurgical processes and all processes regarding data and material flow. The following required features and modules were described in detail:

  • Administration and management of grades, raw materials, operational equipment, treatment instructions and production workflows
  • Order management and sequencing
  • Production preparation including raw material optimization and bucket set-up
  • Operator guidance, process control and optimization of the melting units

In addition to the document with the technical specifications, we provided a tender document in which the content and structure of the offers to be submitted by potential suppliers were described in detail.
