Abstract

Interest in computer based management systems in the steel industry can be attributed to three main reasons. First, steel is a basic industry that is of interest to most of the IIASA NMOs. Second, steel is a complex industry with different types of processing and manufacturing facilities. Third, and most important, the steel industry is perhaps the most advanced area of technology with respect to the application of both an integrated systems approach and computers for real time information processing and decision making.

The major goal of this workshop was to aid IIASA in identifying the most advanced methods for planning, scheduling and production control, and to determine how these methods can be implemented and coordinated to achieve systems integration.

The proceedings of this workshop deal with problem oriented models for industrial technology -- specifically with the application of computers for the control of basic oxygen furnaces. A review of the present practices in nine countries, including Japan, the USA and the USSR, are presented, along with suggestions for further IIASA research.
