Combining big data with detailed process knowledge, EFT and Big River
Steel are solving one of the steel industry’s biggest pain points.

WICHITA, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–EFT Analytics (EFT), a leading provider of predictive analytics, process
optimization and energy management solutions, is working with Big River
Steel, a leading scrap recycling and steel production company, to help
increase production efficiency and reduce unplanned downtime. EFT is
performing its work at the steelmaker’s Arkansas-based facility, the
world’s only Flex Mill™.

EFT’s advanced analytics software platform CORTEX™ is providing Big
River’s operations team unprecedented visibility into the data behind
complex steelmaking processes at the facility. One of the first results
of these efforts is a solution to the industry-wide problem of strip
breaks which occur at the welds in the continuous galvanizing process.

“EFT Analytics continues to partner with us to unlock the predictive
patterns created by the data our facility generates. Our focus on big
data mining is one of the reasons Big River Steel has come to be known
as a technology company that just happens to make steel,” said Dave
Stickler, CEO of Big River Steel. “All those involved in the steel
industry know strip breaks are a challenge. Since implementing the
solutions EFT helped develop, we’ve gone from several strip breaks a
month to near zero, keeping our employees safe and improving our
bottom-line profitability.”

“The EFT and Big River teams used CORTEX to analyze more than six months
of data that allowed us to identify the set points that gave the highest
probability of a successful galvanizing line weld,” said Brent Youngers,
president of EFT Analytics. “We continue to be grateful to the Big River
team for the trust they place in our partnership to help solve some of
the biggest challenges in the steel industry, and we look forward to
working side-by-side with them to keep the Big River Steel facility at
the forefront of the market.”

Since operations began in 2017, Big River has provided steel products to
more than 200 customers in the automotive, energy, construction,
distribution and agricultural industries.
