SAIMM Johannesburg Branch Event | Johannesburg, South Africa | 20 February 2020
February 20 @ 6:00 pm
SAIMM has invited Datamine to lead a technical presentation where our IMS business lead in Africa Bruno Abilleira will be presenting on “Achieving enterprise visibility on the mining value chain – From ore extraction to product delivery”. You don’t want to miss it!
About the presentation:
Lack of visibility of critical business data across sales, logistics, transportation, production and commercial operations as well as other business functions can substantially impact the financial results of any business, and this is especially true among mining companies. Unplanned demurrages charges, contractual breaches, inaccurate and inefficient invoicing practices, are just a few of many drawbacks the industry face on a daily basis.
The increasing pressure from regulatory and compliance codes to ensure quality and timely product delivery, demands process standardization and consistency. Often, the over-use of spreadsheets to overcome those challenges produces an even more chaotic situation, where even simple information about what was mined vs what was sold or forecasted is a difficult task.
Challenges like those can be overcame through a rigorous and well-defined framework leveraged by a database system fully integrated with existing process and/or other systems like, financial and ERP, production e.g. fleet management, ESCADA, LIMS etc. This presentation will discuss in general terms this approach, its deployment and benefits and more specifically, showcase its application on an operating Bauxite mine in West Africa.
