Operations are siloed, data is not utilized well outside of and across siloes, and operational visibility is very often poor. Controlling the variability arising through the course of execution of the mine schedule is required.
Goals and Objectives
Improved efficiency and increased production through better resource allocation and management of equipment and people.
Analytics, control center, IoT, mobility, cognitive/AI, data management
Use Case Summary
The ability to respond in real time to unexpected variability is required for the efficient allocation of resources within mining operations. Applying short interval control within the execution of the mine schedule and enabling activities in the mine to be managed in real time against the plan will deliver improved efficiency and increased production.
