The cement manufacturing industry in the United States is described, as are the processing problems which make the utilization of computer control attractive. Computers are being used to assist in the proportioning of raw materials, the operation of the rotary kiln, and in the raw material and product grinding operations. Process measurement and identification problems currently preclude complete automation, but significant economic benefits have been realized and further progress is under way.
