Congratulations to the three companies who have been selected to present case studies that showcase the successful adoption of their innovative mining technology solution with their industry partner to approximately 750 investors and dealmakers, leaders from over 220 mining companies, and 34 government ministers:
1. AVA Solutions and Exxaro
Case study: Collaboration as a driver of successful digitisation and innovation.
Abstract: There’s a barrage of new technologies and systems in the mining industry all with the promise of unpresented value-add and functionality. Why then do so many operations struggle to extract even 50% of the value from most of these systems? AVA and Exxaro will unpack the successful turn-around strategy of their overburden fleet from the sudden loss of the mines major contractor to the on-boarding of a new contractor, while also developing an emerging contractor. They managed to do this while maintaining a safe operation and exceeding targets. This is the flexibility and focus of a collaborative team with accurate and transparent metrics matched by a digital platform.
2. Commit Works and Anglo American
Case study: South Africa Colliery Mine Turnaround
Abstract: A colliery, owned by Anglo American in South Africa implemented Fewzion during a MOS project run by an Australian consulting business. At the time, the site experienced poor production results, poor safety records, and there was a lack of coordination of work and people. Since the implementation of Fewzion in 2014, the operation saw an immediate improvement in the coordination of work each shift. This resulted in an increase in production results and sustained growth. The operation now sees Fewzion as critical to their performance and is a champion for Commit Works in the African region, hosting teams that want to learn from their performance. Commit Works software has delivered massive production and safety improvements for some of the world’s largest mining companies. The easy-to-use, complete solution has helped large miners and small contractors to deliver 25 to 50% improvements in performance less than three months after implementation on site; and enabled many mines to sustain their results for over four years, through successive management teams and ownership.
3. SiMINE @ Mandela Mining Precinct
Case study: Humanising Digitalisation
Abstract: Companies and industries across the globe, with varying levels of digital and innovation maturity are consistently finding that the people element of digitalisation is overlooked. This talk will be about how SiMINE collaborates with organisations to help them harness the value of their people to ensure effective implementation of technology and innovation initiatives.
