State-of-the-art technology

As requested by ArcelorMittal Bremen, OHB Digital Services has converted an application from Windows CE to Android OS to modernize the technologies utilized.

Simple solutions - huge effect

Instead of manually inputting every single zinc slab, it is now possible to register the entire delivery. A barcode scanner registers the colour codes of the zinc slabs in each delivery. Zinc slabs are marked with a colour code in accordance with international standards. This eliminates the need for the previous manual registration of every single zinc slab. The registration process is now about 10 times faster, yielding significant time savings. The inflow to galvanizing lines Bregal1 and Bregal2 is regulated on the basis of the color codes permitted for the respective galvanizing line. This small modification has had a huge effect. The registration process results in fewer errors and greater efficiency. In addition, the software permits the end-to-end management of zinc slabs, from delivery and warehousing to deployment and inspection as well as shipping and inventory management.

Individual consulting for custom-fit software solutions

The analysis of the operation processes during initial consultation idenfities the objective that needs to be revised and enhanced during the project. Unnecessary operations are eliminated to ensure that the project helps to simplify projects. This results in customized software that not only achieves the objectives of ArcelorMittal but also delights the end users.
