Abstract:
In this paper we consider a typical case study of a continuous steel making process. More specifically, we consider the part of a steel plant consisting of the furnace, the secondary steel making units and the continuous caster. First we write down a model for the evolution of the system. Then we develop some techniques to design (sub)optimal timing and sequencing schemes for this system. The methods we use include a mixture of linear programming, genetic algorithms, tabu search and heuristics.
