Manufacturing and technology assessment of international steel plants

Journal Article


Abstract


  • According to the preliminary results of Alfred P. Sloan study on the competitiveness of the North American steel industry, simply implementing technology in a given process will not ensure an efficient operation. Technology implementation must be managed carefully to balance the operations and eliminate significant bottlenecks. The efficiency of about 40 international steel plants was evaluated in this study. The efficiency and technology of EAF and integrated plants was examined. The appendix includes the methodology used to obtain the required data and a description how the data were analyzed.
