Nicolas Lazare, XPS a Glencore Company

There are still efforts required in mining and metals activities to design accurate and reliable measurements, to improve automation, to apply the basis of Process Control. At beginning of the year 2000 the situation and expectations were not too different with new generations of Advanced Control strategies and Expert Systems.  The conclusion was a mix of huge accomplishments, false starts and major failures.

This presentation will depict the situation and will provide guidance on what we can do better and what we will not change with just magic words.
