Three development stages of an online crown/shape control model are discussed. Each stage bears specific consideration and provides variable information for mill operations. Theoretical derivation of the first stage facilitates understanding of mill rolling behavior. Usage of the crown/shape model leads to the development of the linear crown control system. The second-stage development is to generate an offline simulation model which bridges the gap between theory and application. It is used to verify the theoretical model, to determine control gain factors, and even to examine stability of the control algorithm. The real-time process model is last when conducting mill setup calculations. It has to cope with uncertainties of measured devices, possible errors of the theoretical model, and real-world disturbance of mill operating conditions. Providing a stable, optimal, and accurate setup for the mill is its major responsibility. Statistical methods are used everywhere in these models from tuning to optimizing processes. This optimal linear crown/shape control system has been successfully applied to a production hot strip mill since 1992. The article describes development and application of this rolling model
