In Steel Plant, Steel is produced in LD converters and identified by heat number. The heat is cast in continuous casting machines and heat number is punched/written with thermal chalk. There is no automatic reading/detection of heat nos. The heat number is further lost in the rolling mills furnaces where the blooms/billets are charged into the furnace and heated to a temperature of approx. 1000 deg. C. These red hot blooms are rolled in Rolling Mill. During the process the heat number identity is lost. The tracking of heat number is very important for reducing the mix-up of steel grades/heats. A Software using simulation is sought.
