Sidenor Use Case


The challenge

External and internal disruptions require reallocating the production to different production sites than originally planned. Currently, reconfiguration takes place manually and is based on expert knowledge and spreadsheet calculations. Moreover, decisions taken at the network level are not connected to the reconfiguration needed at the factory level.

The vision of the future process

Based on a secure data exchange using IDS/Gaia-X connectors and the Asset Administration Shell (AAS) concept, the resilience toolbox will guide the user through the steps for network reconfiguration by highlighting the differences with the current configuration status. The macroplanning optimiser uses data from the ERP system to reallocate the production among the facilities and update raw material supplies. In the microplanning optimisation tool, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) agent will compute the scheduling of Sidenor’s plant based on the output of the macroplanning optimisation tool and data from the ERP. The resulting schedule will be displayed to the user.
