AMC at Iron Ore 2019

AMC Consultants is proud to join the world’s leading iron ore producers and consumers at this year’s Iron Ore Conference in Perth, Western Australia. Arranged by the AusIMM, the Conference will take place 22-24 July 2019 under the banner of Optimizing Value. Having completed 629 iron ore projects in 42 countries, 40 of which were Business Improvement assignments, we are  excited to be involved in a conference focusing on a commodity that we have a great deal of experience in.

Led by Kobus Potgieter, Business Improvement Manager – Perth, our team looks forward to sharing our unique Improve approach for iron ore producers at booth #30. Delegates will have an opportunity to interact with our simulation of an operation and finance data using Concerto’s Symphony dynamic scenario value driver tree model. Concerto Analytics is our partner network, and their value modeller, Symphony, uses value driver tree principles to ease budgeting, planning, and rapid re-forecasting, including variance/sensitivity analysis.

Bruce Gregory, the general manager of our office in Perth, is on the organizing committee for Iron Ore 2019 and will be present in both capacities. The conference will feature speakers from Rio Tinto, AMIRA International, Fortescue Metals, Nippon Steel Sumitomo Metal Corporation, BHP, Acadia Iron, and the CSIRO amongst others.
