Competitive pressure is driving mining companies to find new ways to increase their production rate while reducing the cost per ton produced and extending the lifespan of mine sites, or develop new ones.
Although demand for commodities is growing in the long term, the mining industry currently faces a unique set of challenges, namely to improve production, reduce costs and safeguard fixed assets. As a result, productivity improvement is rapidly becoming a key competitive differentiator.
The solution to these challenges lies in automation, the integration of data and real-time optimization of mining processes.
