Maximum Mine Operations Cost Efficiency with Safe, Profitable and Sustainable Asset Utilisation

Mining Industry is plagued by not so uncommon challenges such as under or over utilisation of assets leading to wear and tear, unplanned downtime. Companies are looking at extremely innovative ways to transform the operations to get better insights leading to better utilisation of assets. Empowering the workforce to enable earlier decisions.
Monitor Stranded Assets
Improve visibility of stranded assets and empower field workers with diagnostics and smart procedures to act at the point of inception (faster and better decisions) with the ability to capture and annotate pictures, capture video and audio, edit documentation and write notes to enhance SME communication. Mobile learning through consistent instruction, limits and messaging.

Protect Critical Assets with Predictive Analytics
Software-based modeling of equipment using machine learning and advanced pattern recognition. Leveraging historical data to describe how equipment normally operates and using that to build a model ensures real-time monitoring of the assets behavior. Alerts when the operation deviates from normal, early warning detection of equipment reliability and performance problems. Advanced analytical capabilities including problem identification and root cause analysis ensure critical assets are always protected.

Maximum Performance for Process Economies
Extract maximum performance benefits from existing equipment while respecting operating constraints by connecting to automation systems across sites and leverage data (real-time and historical) to analyse and build cause-effect relationship.
  • Real time dynamic combustion optimisation to reduce thermal NOx generation
  • Heat rate and ramp rate improvements to increase plant efficiency and flexibility
  • Reduced operating costs for secondary NOx reduction systems (lower reagent, utilities consumption and extended catalyst life for SNCR/SCR)
  • Many other applications such as steam temperature control and optimized soot blowing

Enforce Standard Operating Procedures
Companies have many active strategic initiatives within their organisation and these strategic initiatives have multiple objectives and these objectives involve establishing setting up business processes, policies, and procedures to aid execution and measurement. A robust industrial workflow management tool can be the enabling framework to manage these strategic initiatives. A robust workflow management tool compiles data from multiple sources – MES, System Platform, Historian, Predictive Asset Analytics etc. to highlight inconsistencies, coordinate reviews or additional actions based on disposition eg: lock-out/tag-out activities, normal/abnormal events etc.

Closing the Performance Gap
Close to 75-80% of Variation in performance is attributed to human factors and this is caused by lack of advanced decision support methods/tools, Scarce use of performance data except for reports, productivity loss due to tacit knowledge. This directly impacts the economic and sustainability factor and the way to minimise this is by improving decision making support, improve analytics/insights into plant performance, introducing innovative and predictive methods in not only improving, but sustaining the performance. Closing the performance gap results in:
  • Fleet performance monitoring
  • Codify learning
  • Mature from Reactive to Predictive
  • Actionable insights into technical consequences impacting the company economics
  • Insights into improvement opportunities
