Business processes without boundaries
Connected value chain
At one of our hot strip mills we have implemented an Industry 4.0 solution that goes way beyond the boundaries of an individual company. The processes of the supplier, the hot strip mill as the manufacturer, and the customers are connected in a digital network. Hot-rolled strip starts out life as a steel slab. Slab production at Hüttenwerke Krupp-Mannesmann is controlled by the hot strip mill around 80 kilometers away. That means we can respond quickly to our customers’ deadline requirements even with the starting material.
