VIP DATA PLATFORM
Integrating people and processes across the value chain
Value chains in mining operations have become increasingly complex with many internal and external stakeholders interacting at various points. For mining operations to maximise profitability they will need to leverage the latest in digital technology to increase efficiency, lowering operating costs and improving safety.
We bring together technology, equipment, systems and processes within the mineral processing sector through our VIP Data Platform.
Process IQ understand that each operation is unique and we believe in developing specialised solutions tailored to our client’s needs.
We encourage all stakeholders (mining companies, consultants and suppliers) to apply a systematic data-driven and multi-disciplinary approach to facilitate the development of effective and sustainable solutions with expert domain knowledge.
- Data: The first step is to obtain quality of data that will provide the necessary information required to make informed decisions around the specifically identified problem.
- Information: The data is relayed and stored in a database that will enable domain experts to carry out the necessary data analytics and modelling to convert the raw data into information.
- Control & Optimisation: The information is applied to the specific problem in an effective manner using remote expert consulting, advanced data analytics (calculations, statistics as well as AI and machine learning) and/or expert control systems.
- Knowledge & Wisdom: The efficiency of the process is evaluated by applying knowledge and wisdom from internal management and expert consultants (if necessary) and constraints are identified.
- Action: The constraints are critically evaluated, and recommendations made to management on the changes that need to be implemented in order to unlock the full potential of the system.
- Evaluate: Only then can the real return on investment be determined for the system
Remote Access to Expertise
The VIP Data Platform allows for remote access to real-time standardised data obtained from the site. It also allows for our clients to share their information with various experts from around the world to promote remote consulting opportunities within the organisation.
The VIP Data Platform promotes collaboration by allowing for multidirectional flow of standardised information from a centralised location to and from the various stakeholders. The result is a total value add to the operation that goes far beyond that of the sum of the value added by each of the stakeholders had they operated individually.
Improved decision making
The VIP Data Platform collects data from multiple sources allowing for the seamless integration of technology, equipment, systems and processes across the value chain.
Continuity in knowledge
The VIP Platform is a repository of information, capturing events and changes that occurred, thereby promoting continuity in the knowledge and wisdom obtained from past experiences.
