Abstract

An on-line time optimal scheduling system based on the dynamic programming method was developed and installed on a 20-roll mill for rolling stainless steel. Production scale tests using standard operating pass schedules and optimized pass sequences showed good results for all coils rolled according to the optimized rolling schedule. Operating results obtained to date indicate that the rolling time reductions achievable in the stationary rolling phase alone are in the region of approximately 10 - 25%. For the rolling mill considered, the overall throughput increase achieved can be assumed to be in the region of 6%.
