IS YOUR MINE A SMART MINE?

A SMART MINE is a DIGITIZED MINE – a mine that has embraced IIoT technology to connect its assets, people and processes. The three imperatives of a smart mine:

  1. Unified Operating Model in Mining Enterprise
    Siloed systems and lack of a holistic view is brought together by a single pane of glass - one view of the mining enterprise for better insights and decision-making.
  2. Connected Miners, Operators and Workers
    Mine operators have access to real-time data, remote assistance, connectivity to each-other, expert assistance, process simulations and more that reduce downtime and ensure maximum productivity.
  3. Mine Monitoring & Predictive Analysis
    a) Seamless Asset Management to Predict Machine Performance and Optimize Uptime. B) Merged asset monitoring and process models c) Real-time Digital Twins & Machine Learning and d) Automated Fault Detection.

Honeywell Forge Asset Performance Management

Honeywell Forge APM uses digital twin technology and advanced analytics to bring industry 4.0 to mining operations. It detects latent asset performance issues and guides prescriptive actions toward reducing asset-related inefficiencies. The assets maybe varied – from extractors, smelters, heavy moving equipment and trucks but connected technology through
real-time data and insights brings together siloed operations.

Combined with continuous surveillance of key operating and equipment conditions, mine assets will now receive the earliest possible
indication of performance gaps and the quickest path to improving the bottom-line.

Honeywell Forge Workforce Productivity and Competency

Honeywell Forge Workforce Productivity brings greater efficiency to a mine operator’s round by modernizing end to end inspection workflows using data digitization. This allows for closed loop mining workflows, auditable compliance, quick and easy root cause analysis and digitized safety mechanisms that mitigate risks in hazardous conditions. Similarly Workforce Competency products bring remote learning, mine and shaft training simulation and other offsite practices that set best in class industry standards.

Remote mine workers now have access to data from anywhere in the mine, on any device, in real time ultimately building an always-productive mine.

DIGITIZATION OF THE MINE WORKER

The fourth industrial revolution has taken hold. Call it the industrial internet of things (IIoT). Call it Industry 4.0. For industrial companies that rely on paper- based operator rounds, this new layer of technology means transitioning to a smarter, more connected, and more profitable way of doing business.

In the 1990s, internet technology gave businesses a faster, easier, and less expensive way to communicate and share information: email. Today, industrial companies – especially in aerospace, oil and gas/petrochemicals, and mining – have discovered how using internet and mobile technologies to transform their paper-based operator rounds into end-to-end digital workflows yields even greater benefits.
