Abstract

Metallurgical production is based on the use of a wider range of technological processes, but also on a large number of input raw materials. The current highly competitive environment also brings considerable demands on the optimization of all partial processes and operations. Reducing total costs, increasing the efficiency of individual activities, reducing resource consumption are just some of aspects that must be solved by the current metallurgical enterprises. The quality of input raw materials in the blast-furnace process has a significant influence on the technological and economic parameters. The assessment of input raw materials is complicated due to the variety of parameters monitored. These may be the characteristics of chemical, physical, technological, but also operational-economic characteristics. An interesting alternative is the use of logistics tools based on multi-criteria decision making, which will allow to quantify the significance of all relevant criteria. In the framework of the research carried out, a method of weighing the raw materials in the conditions of a selected iron producer in the Czech Republic was applied. The aim of the article is to present the results of the research and possible areas of further use in the environment of metallurgical primary production.
