Keynote II: Optimizing the Connected Mine – 4 December 12.00-13.00
Modern technology provides operations with ample data that can be used to effectively improve productivity and reduce costs. Mines are under pressure to find the next improvement, to deploy advanced analytics and follow those that made autonomous machines the next big thing. But how do they know what is good enough, what assumptions to use for the next mine plan, budget or project. AMC Consultants conducted 200 benchmarking exercises, all verified by operations over the past 15 years and can now answer the question “So, what does good look like?” with confidence.
