On the Optimization of Electric Furnace Smelting Processes.
Electric Furnace Proc 1969 AIME August 1970 1969 27:157-163
The application of experimental design and statistical methods to electric furnace smelting is the purpose of this paper, although the basic concepts can be used for any industrial process, such as steelmaking. Statistical tools are presented in this paper which can be used to evaluate selected variables. Any combination of variables can be used to suit the interests of a particular operator, or operation, or both; and any number of variables can be investigated, depending upon the complexity of the process and the time available.
