Like many industries, the business of mining involves a range of processes, disciplines, skills, equipment and operational units. Bringing these factors together into a cohesive and fully aligned business is a challenge that can deliver significant benefits across economic, environmental and social benefits. The main areas of focus currently include:

  • System Dynamics modelling for mining; modelling capability to capture the System Dynamics behaviour of mining businesses
    • Design better and connect traditionally disparate mining business processes
    • Identify best practice and define ‘beyond best practice’ mining business processes across traditionally disparate disciplines
