Stainless steel producer JISCO standardises production processes with PSI

JISCO TianFeng Stainless uses PSImetals to improve production of coils and sheets

Berlin, 13 February 2015 – JISCO TianFeng Stainless successfully produces flat stainless steel products by using PSImetals as the production management system since late 2014. The standardisation of all business operation flows in Jiayuguan Gansu plant, North Western China, leads to full control down to piece level, improved product quality as well as optimised inventory levels.

Based on customer orders PSImetals automatically generates production orders and production schedules from steel making, hot and cold rolling to plate pickling. If required manual adjustments are supported by enhanced filter mechanisms. The main advantage of the new system is the full traceability of every single piece of material. Each material “knows” its customer order and its delivery date. The ongoing collection of piece based production information leads to optimised stock levels. In addition JISCO is able to run different analysis. One example is the overall analysis on planned and actual costs for each piece based on actual consumption data that allows immediate action in case of significant deviations. Hence a huge manual effort could be reduced dramatically. Finally the requirement to reflect and support necessary changes of production processes in the future will be fully supported by flexible configuration possibilities of the PSImetals system.
