Abstract

"A system of costs and metallurgical records similar to that outlined herein is in use in a number of modern Smelters, and is of interest as showing what information is desirable for proper plant control. From a study of this information, which is usually compiled monthly in such a manner that comparisons may be readily made, it is possible to modify current practice to obtain maximum operating efficiency, and to approximate very closely the benefit that may be derived from changes in and additions to the plant itself and the methods of operation, or in the materials received and treated. These records also give invaluable information regarding the performance o:f individual departments of the plant, are useful for comparison with other plants of the same type and have many other uses which will readily suggest themselves"--page 4.
