October 13, 2017 – Schneider Electric announced enhancements to its Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) solution for the Mining industry. In-line with its long time strategy to invest in software and service solutions for the Mining, Metals and Minerals industries, Schneider Electric is committed to help mining organizations drive digital transformation across their enterprise. This initiative can help optimize the mining supply chain, drive efficiency and maximize utilization of all operating assets, resulting in better profitability.
Mining companies are challenged with volatile commodity prices, rising energy costs and increased global competition. These organizations must shift focus to proactively review internal processes, identify new process improvement opportunities and leverage new technologies to drive operational excellence across the entire mining value chain.
Schneider Electric offers Mining organizations an opportunity to digitally transform their operations with accurate, real-time visibility to information across production, inventory and quality management processes. Miners can now automatically log all inputs and outputs of the plant in real-time, including materials, consumables, energy, waste and emissions output.
This data, when made available to domain-specific decision support tools and integrated with supply chain and enterprise resource planning systems, unlocks new levels of intelligence to drive continuous improvement. Eliminating manually entered production values while breaking down pervasive operational data silos can minimize time, errors and costs associated with manual and duplicate data-entry, further enhancing agility and transform key aspects of mining at every step of the value chain.
Select improvements of Schneider Electric Software’s MOM solution for the Mining industry include:
- User selectable point in time feature for ‘Inventory data reprocessing’
- Data reprocessing has improved performance by 4X
- New “Calculated Inventory” feature to define custom calculations on captured inventory data
- Ampla Planner, Gantt Chart usability and user experience enhancements
- Client response times has improved performance by 2X
- Wonderware Online InSight connectivity
