Economics analysis

SteelConsult has in-depth knowledge of the economics of iron and steelmaking. SteelConsult has developed a unique techno-economic business planning model, which is tailored to companies and processes in the iron and steel industry. Our model allows detailed, transparent and integrated insight into your operations, your cash flows and production costs.

Our model distinguishes itself by:

Attention to plant operations: our model is based on a bottom-up analysis of all production lines including material flows, capacities, yield factors, scrap, energy credits and so on. Other models are usually limited to top-down analysis of balance sheet, P&L account and cash flow statement;

Comprehensiveness: markets, market shares, prices, processes, capacities, investments, costs and financial parameters are all interlinked, showing effects of changes in one part of the company in all other parts of the company;

Transparency: the model has been designed to remain as simple and transparent as possible. The model is organised process by process and follows the product flow of the company. There is a clear distinction between input fields and (automatic) calculations. Summary sheets and charts provide a quick overview of key parameters;

Flexibility: allowing for easy sensitivity and scenario analysis.
