The «Industry 4.0» trend has appeared because of IT-system’s complexity, productivity and functionality growth. It implies a quantum leap in the industry due to Big Data, digitalisation and cyber-physic systems implementation. This work contains research papers analysis that shows the ability of information systems to improve companies’ business-processes efficiency. A conclusion has been made that the introduction of a new generation of MES-level systems is the most promising for the Russian steelmaking industry. Business-processes models for the energy complex have been developed by the IDEF0 procedure with the purpose of optimisation potentials analysis.

Maturity assessment of MES functions automatisation has been carried out using the example of a major iron and steel company’s energy complex. A maturity model and assessment procedure have been worked out for this purpose. Then the target maturity level has been defined which will make it possible to improve business-processes of the energy complex. As a result of the current and target levels comparison the requirements for MES have been made.
