MMG Limited

Increased asset utilization by at least 10% across the sites

MMG Limited

MMG Limited implemented AVEVA MES solution to standardise asset utilisation across five mines globally and take the old OEE lag indicator into a real-time lead indicator.

Goals

  • Implementation of a standardised asset utilization solution across all operational sites globally
  • Achieve ongoing measurement, analysis, and reporting of production losses due to equipment utilisation
  • Ability to perform root-cause analysis of “less than perfect” utilization of equipment assets
  • Complete integration with other systems to enable “single sign on”

Challenges

  • Defining the maximum sustainable rate for processes, which may differ between sites
  • Achieving the appropriate level of automated data capture at the instrumentation and data collection layers
  • Standardising time usage model (TUM), cause codes and classification matrix across all five current operating sites globally
  • Adoption of the new work practices given the extensive work experience of people within each operation

Results

  • Significant improvements to productivity
  • Exposes the process constraints, or bottlenecks, and also efficiency gains
  • Provides clear root cause analysis (native drill down capability)
  • Provides clarity on how to achieve optimum productivity
  • Drives improvement to assets, resources, and processes
  • Increased asset utilisation by at least 10% across the sites

"MMG is committed to improving the productivity of our operations, illustrated by these record movements in ore mined and continuing improvements in Asset Utilisation."

– Andrew Michelmore, Chief Executive Officer, MMG Limited
