    Abstract

    The shape control problem for a Sendzimir cold rolling steel mill has been well documented. However, application of the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) allows valuable insight to be gained into the control problem and produces a superior control strategy. In addition, singular values provide a natural basis for robustness analysis which is important in the mill context, due to the multi-pass, multi-schedule operation with resulting frequent changes in the plant parameters.
