This is NOT another boring Digital Transformation Blog!

Operational Agility in Mining


Posted
: 18th January 2021

Daily market changes in the mining industry can make it difficult to get ahead.

This has driven mining companies around the world to embark on a Digital Transformation journey.

Don’t worry, this isn’t another boring blog post about the digital transformation journey of most companies. In fact, I won’t use that term again.

Afterall, I am not sure those journeys are successful most of the time. If you don’t choose the right partner and vendor then you are likely to fail. So many people start by focusing on the newest and coolest technology. You need to focus on solving your problems.

Back to the point: Operational Agility.

In a fast-changing world, operational agility is key to remaining competitive. If you want to be competitive, you must move with the daily market changes.

You already know this. What is preventing you from being operationally agile?

If I had to guess, it is probably due to a lack of operational visibility.

Does that ring a bell?

Not having visibility into your operations eliminates your ability to be agile. It also causes frequent penalties affecting profit outcome, high energy consumption, and poor asset utilization.

None of that sounds good does it?

So what are you going to do about it?

There must be a way to gain operational visibility that results in operational agility, right?

Fortunately, there is: AVEVA Unified Supply Chain

Don’t worry, I am not going to drone on and on about my company’s product. I could, but I won’t.

I will say that it allows you remain competitive by regaining Operational Visibility to Maximize Profits. Remember those daily market changes. AVEVA Unified Supply Chain allows you address those changes quickly and react appropriately. This is the Operational Agility that you need.

Here are two examples of customer successes?

  • An Iron Ore Producer in Canada is saving of $388K/day by optimizing demurrage costs. Additionally, they have achieved enterprise collaboration by eliminating departmental silos and point solutions. They also increased planning efficiency by eliminating redundant planning tasks using a consistent platform across the entire value chain
  • A Coal Producer is saving Potential saving of $215K every two weeks by optimizing blending sequence, quality and contractual targets. This same company is minimizing penalties that could result from under-delivering contractual targets.

Do you want to eliminate unaccounted losses?

Do you need to reduce costly business gaps?

Do you need to increase collaboration?

Do you need to decrease the total cost of ownership?

Do you need Operational Visibility?

I am willing to bet you do, for two reasons:

  1. Most mining companies need at least 3 of the items above

    AND

  2. I still have your attention, since you read all the way to the end of this blog!
