Together with their Russian partner, Malahit, PSI has been charged by the ChTPZ Group with the supply of a warehouse and transport management system (WTM) for the Chelyabinsk large-tube plant as well as an advanced line sequencing (ALS) and production execution system (PES) for the coating line within the tube welding complex in Chelyabinsk. Both solutions are based on the industry standard PSImetals, which has already been implemented in the course of two projects for the ChTPZ Group. The commencement of operations for the systems is planned for the second half of 2009.
The objectives of the PSImetals WTM implementation are the optimal utilization of the automatic transport devices and the warehouse of the large-tube plant as well as the optimization of the entire logistics process. With PSImetals PES, the direct exchange of information between the plant control and the enterprise software will be guaranteed.
Malahit is a Russian IT provider, which has more than 15 years of experience in the planning, development, implementation and maintenance of ERP software in the metallurgic industry. PSI had already obtained two contracts for sequencing and production execution for the ChTPZ Group plants in Chelyabinsk and Pervouralsk. With the current follow-up orders, PSI is further expanding its position in the high-growth Russian steel industry.
