Mine-to-market Industry 4.0 insights: get the complete, real-time view from end-to-end.
Access free resources and discover how Industry 4.0 technology can give you complete oversight of operations from mine-to-market.
Industry 4.0 technology enables miners to get the real-time performance metrics they need + all-new abilities to improve them.
Even before the pandemic, COP26, and war in Ukraine; the mining sector was undergoing a paradigm shift.
Local carbon reduction targets and the growing demand for different products in order to support energy transition presents the sector with a very clear future.
Achieving this change would be challenge enough, but it comes against the backdrop of reducing mine productivity rates, limited capital availability, and obligations to the sector’s own environmental, social as well as workforce ‘zero targets’ all adding complexity.
The question is: how can the mining sector achieve its own zero harm, zero waste and zero carbon commitments; change to support energy transition; as well as protect short-to-medium term profitability?
Industry 4.0 technology presents the mining sector with a vast array of opportunities to transform - both operationally and strategically - and can give it the real-time monitoring abilities from mine-to-market that will be critical if miners are to succeed in the present whilst plotting a profitable future.
What's more, immediate efficiency savings and yield increases can be simply and rapidly achieved through the adoption of intelligent Industry 4.0 technologies that harness the power of data science to analyze real-time data and then direct manual optimizations or AI-led interventions in an all-in-one solution.
Using an intelligent, next generation data, AI + IoT platform, miners can collate, process and analyze all their data from mine-to-market in real-time; uncover macro, micro, lifetime and lifecycle insights using machine learning; and then seize new opportunities offered by AI and automation-led abilities. The technology enables you to drill-down and identify individual assets or areas that might be causing operational problems today, predict those that will tomorrow, and provide decision-makers in the boardroom and the field with the means to analyze, optimize and de-risk their operations like never before - in real-time - so that they can achieve critical strategic and operational goals.
The technology also enables businesses to integrate all its data, no matter its location; guarantee data accuracy; and then apply adaptive and predictive analytics to give not only an accurate real-time single source of truth, but the insights needed to design a roadmap that plots the path from miners to commodity providers, all whilst managing and minimizing environmental and workforce harm, successfully.
