One way to stimulate productivity and efficiency in quarrying operations is to have real control and understanding of the production versus the plan. Operations can analyse trends to justify process changes and understand the best working practises for every activity from quarry to plant to final product.
Planning and metrics allow you to improve earnings from the rock deposits currently in production. Evaluate your current Metrics used to track your quarry production and profits. Quarries tend to create waste as a consequence of the production process. Quarries tend to waste some profitable reserves.
The first step is to improve the design and engineering of projects, in particular through scrutiny of project plans to cut waste. Next is rigorous project execution: mines must get the right organizational structure in place to eliminate silos in project teams and impose a disciplined process for monitoring and control of capital projects.
Improve safety by digitizing underground mining Safety is paramount to mining operations, and good safety methods can lead to improved production. By digitizing your underground mining operations, you are not only improving safety, but also enabling your staff to achieve breakthrough performance in all areas of the mining life cycle.
