Solving real world problems through math – improving mining productivity with operational simulation

The Mining Industry is changing, and with this change comes the opportunity to capitalize on the drivers of this change.  The economic conditions that drove mining booms in the past was a perfect storm that may never arise again.  Companies pivot accordingly to look for the opportunities to be successful from within.  How do we reduce costs while maintaining or improving productivity?  How do we improve the bottom line if the commodity prices no longer flux.  The Mining Industry has become hungry for solutions from within – how do we improve what we already do?  Instead of relying on a step change to improve the bottom line, we turn to incremental improvements to grow.  In the world of precision, math is king, and here are some examples of how we’ve helped companies reap the benefits of this.
