Digital transformation at thyssenkrupp Steel

Digitization is in full swing

Data have played a major role in the highly automated steel industry for decades. Within the scope of the digital transformation, their intelligent use opens up new possibilities to further increase delivery performance and production quality.

“You see the chassis in the middle of the room? Come on, let's take a closer look at it“, says the Avatar next to me. I follow him without moving, with my laser pointer. The vehicle is now right in front of me. Transparent, three-dimensional, virtual. We can view details of the high-strength steels used in the building via our context menu. Next, we simulate a crash and test how the materials behave. Will the welds hold? And is everything inside the vehicle still intact? I stoop to look through the door. Carefully and with a funny twist so I don't hit my head. Somebody next to me is laughing – it is not the Avatar. I realize that I am standing in a conference room and wearing VR goggles, and that my virtual interlocutor is actually in another room.
