The Kick-Off meeting of the TrackOpt RFCS project was held on February 5-6 in Osoppo in Italy.
The aim of the TrackOpt is to implement automated ladle tracking systems to ensure consistent factory-wide tracking of the product from steelmaking via casting to delivery
The meeting was held at the Ferriere Nord steel making plant, the industrial partner of the project. An insightful visit was organised to present the whole process and the plant organisation to the research partners: BFI, the German coordinator, Sant’Anna school of advanced studies from Pisa (Italy) and CETIC. All partners could then discuss about the general project organisation and the tasks of the first project year.
