ArcelorMittal: Digital Transformation of Excel spreadsheets to the #1 KPI in our plant, using Sigmafine

Presentation from the Sigmafine Summit in Houston, October 23, 2019.


In the mining industries, metallurgical accounting is as important as financial accounting because every ton of production turn into dollars on the financial statement. Uncertainties in the production translate directly into uncertainties in the financial statement and the decision making that follows. Therefore, improving the accuracy, consistency, transparency, timeliness and reliability of the transformation of measured data through sensors and analysers in the plant into “bankable” and actionable production data is mission critical. In this presentation you will hear about our digital transformation journey to achieve a high level of trust and confidence in the production data at our Iron ore pelletizing plant located in Port Cartier (QC), Canada.
