Steel Converter Process
The model of steel converter process focuses on crane management algorithm that should minimize discontinuities in the Continuous Casting Machines (CCM) operation. The critical timing is imposed by the CCMs and additional constrains come from the steel converters and the ladle transportation vehicles. The algorithm implemented in the model is based on stochastic crane management and is known to be not optimal in some configurations. The number of cranes matters too: it should correspond to the number of other elements in the system for good productivity. The model is highly scalable: it can work with any number of CCMs, converters, cranes, etc. and any distance, timing and capacity parameters.
The model was created with AnyLogic - simulation software / Steel Manufacturing
