Reliability Impact in the Mining Industry

Facilities in the mining industry are responsible for meeting regulatory requirements and ensuring the safety of their employees and surrounding communities, all while balancing performance and costs. Increased labor and materials costs, unplanned downtime, and poor life-cycle decisions can create inefficiencies in production for mines and their associated material processing facilities. Additionally, these facilities often have static data stored in different locations or missing entirely, making it difficult for facility leadership to quickly make smart reliability decisions for their systems.

How can mining facilities pivot their systems so they can make more strategic reliability decisions? By integrating a near real-time reliability simulation of their entire product processing infrastructure through a data-driven approach to reliability.

Reliability Confidence at Every Stage

Whether it’s upstream, midstream, refining, chemical, mining, water, or another industrial process, we meet our customers at whatever stage they fall in to help them navigate forward with confidence.

In the FEED stage, we can use the right modeling approaches to optimize design for the entire lifecycle with reliability in mind. In the build or startup phase, we can support from a reliability perspective, ensuring the customer is confident in their reliability strategy from startup.

Fundamentals vary based on the facility and specific needs. We use a data-driven approach to ensure the customer is getting the right fundamentals in place that work for them, which can include technology selection, people and process, data and documentation management, and modeling.

There is no shortage of initiatives in today’s market. We use a data-driven approach to identify value opportunities and bring them to reality. Objectives range from unplanned downtime reduction, optimized planned downtime, reduced reliability spend, to process safety risk reduction.

In the post-transformation stage, we help our customers sustain the transformations they have achieved and continue to improve their programs quarter by quarter, year over year. This can range from reliability engineering support to the full outsourcing of reliability functions.

Newton™

Newton™ connects all of your data and systems, allowing you to see each data point from one platform, analyze that data, and provide plans that drive quantifiable value at your mine plant.

Quantitative Reliability Optimization (QRO)

Quantitative Reliability Optimization (QRO) is the method by which every facet of system reliability is stochastically quantified, allowing operators to understand how every data point and activity impact overall mine plant performance, resulting in a continually evergreened comprehensive reliability plan to yield the highest return on reliability investment.

The Economics of Reliability Report

In our first-of-its-kind Economics of Reliability Report, we dive into how the global refining industry is affected by reliability today, proving reliability is a key differentiation between high and low performers. While the mining industry will be featured in an upcoming report, this report contains many results that can be shared across all reliability industries.
