Citect Wins the Double at Microsoft Australia and New Zealand Partner 2005 Awards
Citect won the awards for its application of CitectIIM Downtime at WMC Resources Olympic Dam mine where it enabled output capacity to be increased by 24%, equivalent to $250,000.00 per day, by improving the productivity of its underground rail haulage. The project scope included replacing the pen and paper system used by Control Room Operators with an automatic capture of data from multiple plant and business systems, presenting it as real-time information throughout the mine. It enabled WMC to identify that two automated trains that transported the ore to the crusher were breaking down excessively; to drilldown into the cause of those breakdowns and fix them.
These awards are testament to the innovative work were doing here at Citect, with Microsoft and with our many valued customers, said Rick Webb, CEO, Citect. What WMC Resources has been able to achieve is just one example in many, of customers worldwide realising fast and significant ROI with CitectIIM.
