Unified Supply Chain: Developing a More Collective Mine
What comes to mind when you hear the word “collective”? Perhaps togetherness or unity. Collective is best defined as, “a cooperative enterprise.” In other words, all parts working together as one. Is your mine a collective enterprise?
A siloed problem…
Today from mining to processing, from port to shipping, miners typically use point solutions to execute operations planning & scheduling. This, however, creates large gaps and missed opportunities including…
• Different scheduling priorities
• Varying process models
• Constraints on optimization requirements and maintenance plans
As silos continue to perform daily, lack of visibility occurs across the mining enterprise.
A collective solution…
What is a Unified Supply Chain? Unified Supply Chain Management is a transform-approach to operational excellence by optimizing the entire mining supply chain, reducing redundant operations, driving efficiency through the entire process and maximizing utilization of all assets.
A Unified Supply Chain Solution can eliminate unaccounted losses that occur along the value chain, reduce costly business gaps, increase collaboration, and decrease the total cost of ownership. The solution connects people with process and technology. Simple and transparent, the simplicity of the solution allows for reduced dependence on application experts. Cloud and subscription-based, there is a broad user accessibility to a unified decision-making tool. Also, easy for collaboration and deployment, Unified Supply Chain solutions are scalable with multiple hosting options. This helps to connect Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream operations for increased visibility across the enterprise.
