16:05 – 16:20 "Digital Twins Are Propelling Steel Industry to the New Level of Decision-making" Presentationby Yale Zang, Principal Consultant, System Integration & Interoperability, Digital, HATCH

Following the "3I" framework – Integration, Intelligence, and Interaction, Hatch has been developing digital twins for key assets in ironmaking and steelmaking processes. In this presentation, Hatch subject matter expert will share our experience using two industrial examples, blast furnace twin and electric steelmaking process twin, to demonstrate digital twin’s value through timely and collaborative decision-making. Our agile development approach, lessons learned from industrial implementations, together with an evolving performance-based commercial model to accelerate time-to-value will be discussed.

16:20 – 16:25 Q&A

16:25 – 16:40 "Links in a chain: Delivering the Bulk Commodities Digital Value Chain one initiative at a time" Presentation by Wes Reed, Principal Consultant, Digital Value Chain, HATCH

Bulk commodity value chains are complex and dynamic. Before the full benefits of digitization can be realized, a fundamental understanding of system capability, logistics constraints, and market factors is essential. Hatch’s Digital Value Chain subject matter expert will present our 4-step methodology for assessing business improvement opportunities using digital tools, and the subsequent design and implementation of solutions to realize the benefit. In this presentation, we examine how several value-creation initiatives were implemented for a tier 1 metallurgical coal producer using this approach.
