SteelTrace, a digital platform provider utilising blockchain technology to manage all aspects of the steel supply chain, has been selected by Chevron Technology Ventures, LLC (CTV) as part of its Catalyst Program™.
In December 2022 SteelTrace received the ISO 27001:2017 certification. Through an external audit, it has been verified that SteelTrace meets the requirements of ISO 27001:2017 for the scope of: information security related to the development, delivery and support of a software as a service that stores quality and supply chain related data and provides non-repudiation, transparency, and traceability throughout the supply chain.
In the steel industry, it is essential to keep track of every aspect of the manufacturing process to ensure high-quality products and meet the required industry standards. This is where the manufacturing record book comes into play.
SteelTrace, the data vizualisation and analysis platform for material traceability, has released its latest version, 1.5.9, bringing new features and improvements to its already robust set of tools. This release includes adjustable bins for histograms, the removal of beta status for violin plots, scatter plots for smaller data sets, a new signature timeline, an improved test summary table, and the deployment of the new uploader on coating campaigns.
The steel utilized in the energy sector needs to meet the desired level of quality, standards and specifications. For this reason, quality management is a key aspect in the steel supply chain. Quality control and quality assurance are two important tasks in the process of quality management. However, while both are aimed at ensuring that the products meet the desired level of quality, there are some key differences between these two roles.
The energy industry uses steel for many different applications, and steel products are subjected to different operating conditions such as high temperature, high pressure, fatigue etc. This is why the steel products used in these applications need to be strong, durable, and resistant, and material testing is a crucial task in quality management.
Quality management of steel in the oil and gas is on the verge of a big change. New technologies automates a lot of the work previously done by experts. On the other hand the operator’s ambitions on digital twins to enable things like turn around simulations require quality management to become more data management. Data capture, quality management and supply chain will become more closely linked together.
SteelTrace is introducing violin plots on its platform. Violin plots are very similar to box plots but have some extra advantages. In this blog post we will discuss the differences between box and violin plots and why they are useful for a platform like SteelTrace.
We know why we want a digital twin. Things like predictive maintenance, unmanned facilities, root cause analyses, simulations for turn around planning etc. Here are 6 data points you might want to add to your digital twin solution.
We compared for the first time two processes, making a cake and making a weld joint, that could sound very different, but that surprisingly have very similar steps. This blog post will show you the similarities.
SteelTrace is introducing histograms and box plots for the order page. You can generate histograms on the hardness, tensile and impact values and filter down by PO item, heat, or heat lot. We are also working on histograms for the pipe dimensions for the next version…
In the steel industry are many of standards and requirements that material need to comply with throughout every step of the supply chain. This can slow down processes and increase the chance of errors. But then how can we increase the efficiency and reliability of the steel supply chain? In this blog post we’ll discuss our solution.
