Abstract : Because of the high cost of operating industrial plants, computers are necessary for the simultaneous control of the different departments making up the whole operation. A large amount of information must be stored in the computers. This report concerns the Controlling Computational Complex (PROKAT). At first the problem of industrial control was analyzed with a complex of computers. Losses and reserves of the metallurgical manufacturing process were evaluated. Solving this problem should lead to an increase in the heating pit temperature and productivity, and a reduction in specific fuel consumption and machine idling. A profit graph is shown which does not consider personnel reduction. The Martin shop's use of a computer is described. PROKAT has five automatic local control systems, a centralized information system and a central control calculation machine. Local automatic controls control each section; the centralized control assures assembly, information accumulation, processing and documentation, while the calculating machine regulates the interaction of the different sections. The different functions are listed. A comparison of humans with the machines is given along with a specific operational description. (Author)
