Today automation systems are a key success factor in the steel industry. A typical software stack of a
steel plant consists of a heterogeneous layered set of software systems that optimize the production
process at different levels of abstraction ranging from high level order tracking and order assignment
systems to low level PLC control systems for individual plants.
This talk will give a brief overview of the steel making process and provide a brief overview of the
typical software stack of a steel plant. This will provide the necessary context information for the
Nozzle Expert. The Nozzle Expert is a Primetals software product that constantly monitors the water
flows, air flows and water pressures of a slab caster?s spray cooling system to predict nozzle
clogging and cooling water leakage for all cooling zones along the strand. We will then present two
different approaches to realize a Nozzle Expert and discuss their strengths and weaknesses.
Klaus Seyerlehner holds a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science both from Johannes
Kepler University. He was working as a research assistant for the Austrian Research Institute for
Artificial Intelligence (OFAI) and the Institute of Computational Perception (CP) from 2006 till
2011. He received the Award of Excellence form the Austrian ministry of science for his thesis.
Since 2011 he is working for Primetals Technologies (former Siemens VAI Metals Technologies) as
a Software Engineer for automation systems of steel plants.
