The current work outlines application of a framework based on artificial neural networks and an integrated optimization module to adjustment of process parameters in steel production. The framework was originally developed for adjustment of parameters of material production processes in order to obtain the desired outcomes, and was primarily intended for use in the production of carbon nanomaterials in arc discharge reactors. Further development lead to more generalized procedures, applicable

An example of optimizing the process parameters in continuous casting of steel on basis of expert knowledge and by the developed system is presented. Further steps are made towards modeling of the whole process chain in the steel plant, rather than just the casting process. Such models are in the development stage, and some preliminary results are shown where the model is used for performing some parametric studies.
