Maintained Mine & Machine

  • Health and safety
  • Land-use planning
  • Permitting processes / policy integration
  • Reporting official statistics
  • Socio-economic and environmental impact assessments

Challenge the practice is addressing: This practice addresses the improvement of the whole mine maintenance by providing a structured and clear overview of analyzed conditions after collecting and processing machine and infrastructure data. Optimizing the entire mine maintenance will improve operational availability, efficiency and the safety of the machines, mine workings and employees.

Concrete practice to achieve the expected goal: The development of a combined cyber-physical software system will increase the operational availability and lead to cost-saving maintenance intervals. During the improvement process dependencies will be pointed out to eventually improve the production.

Expected impact/goal of the practice: The expected impact of this practice is that the real-time maintenance data supply will have a shorter response time for needed modifications during mining operations

Who is the target user group of the practice/intervention or implementing the practice/intervention? This practice is mainly relevant for industry contexts.
