ArcelorMittal Mines Canada is one of the premier Canadian suppliers of iron-ore to world steel markets. ArcelorMittal has diverse, geographically dispersed operations, including an open pit mine at Mont-Wright near the town of Fermont in Quebec, Canada, a pellet plant and a private port in Port-Cartier, Quebec as well as a 420 km railway linking both sites. ArcelorMittal has used the PI System for over 15 years, typically to store process and control data. In 2011-2012, after completing an expansion project, ArcelorMittal significantly increased annual concentrate production targets, stressing the need to reinforce operational excellence standards. When logistical issues have cropped up throughout its supply chain, ArcelorMittal started using the PI System to transform and correlate data from disparate key systems to produce information enabling strategic and rapid decision making. As the cornerstone for transforming data into action, the PI System now plays a major role within the company's strategy. This presentation describes how Arcelor Mittal uses the PI System and Asset Framework to optimize operations and logistics across their organization – including mining heavy equipment, railway and port infrastructure transportation backbones and how it has contributed in reaching performance and production targets."
