Management system for zinc slabs (Zinkbrammen)
OHB Digital Services develops for long-term partner and world's biggest steel group ArcelorMittal, located in Bremen, a software solution for a more efficient capture and management process of zinc slabs.
time savings due to a simplified capture process of the deleveries
establishment of an innovative, holistic management system for zinc slabs
user-friendly system due to reduced amount of input and intuitive usability
process optimization by reducing the amount of mistakes. Manual input of colour codes of the zinc slabs was eleminated
Simple solutions - huge effect
Instead of a manual input of every single zinc slab, it is now possible to register the entire delivery. By using a barcode scanner, the colour codes of the zinc slabs are registered per delivery. Acording to international standards zinc slabs are marked with a colour code. The previous manual registration of every single zinc slab is therefore eliminated. The registration process is now about 10 times faster which leads to significant time savings. The inflow to galvanizing lines Bregal1 and Bregal2 is regulated due to insight into the allowed colours per galvanizing line. This small modification shows an huge effect. The capture process allows less errors and becomes more efficient. In addition, the software enables a holistic management of zinc slabs, from delivery and warehousing over deployment and inspection to shipping and inventory.
Individual consultation for custom-fit software solutions
By analyzing the operation processes during the initial consultation there arises an objective that needs to be revised and improved during the project. Unnecessary operations are replaced to ensure that the project contributes to a simplification of processes. As a result there is a software that is individually adjusted, not only to achieve the objectives of ArcelorMittal, but also to delight the end users.
