The effort devoted analysing and capitalizing on the know-how of blast furnace operators in the Usinor Group provides us with confidence that the objectives described in the introduction can be achieved. Already, indirect spin offs have provided the benefit of the workconducted in the field of achievements, the attitude of the Operators has evolved, the expertize of each individual having analytic approach, common to all actors, has gradually been accepted.
And a real improvement of the industrial technical results has been achieved, especially in the field of the availability and the reliability of the Blast Furnace.
The basis for a pole of competence for the Usinor Group has been established by the launching of this project at the end of 1991. The experience of the last years has demonstrated that this objective has also been achieved.
