Route generator

«A unique tool that builds all possible production routes for each product based on the order portfolio»

Every minute, it is getting more and more difficult to build supply chains. The most important purpose of planning is to ensure a timely execution of orders per contractual obligations and at optimum cost. Scheduling is an essential part of operations planning for any major production company. Its main task is to provide a detailed production plan in order to ensure adequate and balanced daily operations of a company and its divisions.

Just imagine trying to analyze a supply chain in all its complexity. Adding to the value of planning by making informed decisions. ROUTE GENERATOR is a tool of the future.


Metallurgical production routes includes numerous operations and are typically quite long. Route Generator creates all possible production routes on the basis of the requirements specified in the order portfolio and the availability of production facilities. Apart from a preferred production route, the system also generates alternative routes.

  • Route Generator relies on the Reference Data.
    • o add information to the Reference Data: i.e. information about a production process in a formal presentation.
      • - by hand
      • - by way of integration from another system
      • - by means of a dedicated MES module
      • Building a sequence of operations..


ROUTE GENERATOR rejects all impracticable routes and offers only those that are really practicable.

The generated routes are not stored in the Reference Data as they are. They are rules only that are stored there. Following changes in the Reference Data, ROUTE GENERATOR can build different routes. All routes are generated to the end even if there are errors.


Use of ROUTE GENERATOR is not confined to iron and steel industry. If there arises a need to generate a sequence of operations based on certain rules. Especially if there are possible several of such sequences – ROUTE GENERATOR


When generating production routes, ROUTE GENERATOR accounts for machine and process parameters. It offers a unique dynamic tool that is being adopted by steel makers.


Having received a production order, ROUTE GENERATOR analyzes if it will be possible to execute the order. For this, it takes information from the Reference Data and determines with what equipment and by means of what process the order can be executed


After that, ROUTE GENERATOR forms a sequence of production units which can help deliver the order with given characteristics. This creates production flows (or, routes) and an order can follow them from steel melting to loading


A chief process person defines a target production route for a particular product from the order portfolio and gives detailed machine parameters. The final data are then transferred to the Planning & Scheduling System
