How the Digital Transformation is driving increased efficiency in mining operations


Mr Mark Mills ( - General Electric), Mr Kevin Shikoluk ( - General Electric)

The application of big data and advanced analytics has the potential to unlock untapped areas of productivity and efficiency for mining haul trucks. From digital modeling and validation in the design process to active monitoring and diagnosis of electronic and mechanical systems, GE is at the forefront of the Industrial Internet. This exciting new technology will greatly improve life cycle cost of mining assets through optimizing overhaul intervals to greatly improving fuel consumption by understanding the asset’s interaction with other mine equipment on a real-time basis. This discussion will present some of innovative technology GE currently employs as well as a preview of some of big data innovations.
