The steel industry is continuously looking for new ways to improve resource efficiency and sustainability due to high dependence on resources and increasing demand for more sustainable production. There are general tools and methodologies available and applicable for a wide range of production processes. The general tools and methodologies have similar characteristics as the domain specific tools needed or already utilized in the steel industry. However, there is still clear need for integration, further development, domain specific modelling, utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning. This paper reviews the current state and recent developments of plant coordination & control, raw materials & energy optimization and quality management in steel industry and discusses the future methods and developments.
