The aim of the research is to develop a method for efficient organization of specialized information support for the automated process control system, which makes it possible to save only information about key elements of a complex structured image. When performing the research, the concept of a complex structured image is introduced, which includes the object of research and many elements that violate its continuity. To describe the image, a structural unit of information is introduced, which includes the following for the research object: belonging to the class, brightness histogram, starting point and description of the object boundary; for elements within the object of investigation: the starting point of the region of each element and the description of the element boundary. To implement the structural information unit, a functional diagram of the software product has been developed, which contains two blocks: a block for forming a mathematical description of the image for storage in the corporate Vault; a block of using the mathematical description for peer review with the requirement of restoring the original image. The developed method has been tested for images of sulfuric imprints of continuous-cast billets for the conditions of a large metallurgical enterprise in Russia. The initial materials were obtained during a passive experiment on a continuous casting machine of a curvilinear type. To study the behavior of the computational experiment, a software product has been designed and developed that provides the construction of a mathematical description of the image and its reconstruction. Using the array of retrospective information in 2011-2018 and the developed software product, an assessment of the efficiency of presentation of graphic information in the form of a structural unit of information without direct preservation of the image was performed. The average share of the stored information from the initial volume is 0.53%. The results of the research are applicable for automated control systems for technological processes and industries where expert evaluation of objects by images is necessary, for example, product quality, integrity of equipment, continuity of objects in the medical and consumer goods industry.
