Accurate knowledge informs good decisions.  A common challenge in mining is that the information needed to make sound, quick decisions is not always accessible in real-time. Even when the information is available, the context might not be.  Effective mine management is obtained when your complete set of operational data is available, and you can stay informed around the clock and in context.  For this reason, our team has worked hard to bring a data visualization system to the mining industry that emphasizes real-time information with accurate and easy to understand, 3D visualization for a complete 360 of everything that matters to you.

Making sure that information is available when it’s needed for optimized decision making, systems need to always be on, continuously monitoring the status of all mining activities.

The key to this is interoperability – seamless integration of your existing technologies so that they can operate collaboratively. Some direct benefits of creating interoperability  amongst your mining technology systems are: efficiency, cost reduction, customization, shared availability, scalability, and ultimately powers your team’s ability to innovate. Data, for example, when stored in an open standard database and/or be accompanied by APIs and file-transfer systems, enables ease of integration and data sharing.

Mines that are adopting more advanced digital tools, or an automation strategy will undoubtedly generate significant amounts of data.  Organizing vast amounts of data is a challenge, but accessing and using this data for continuous improvement purposes is an even bigger challenge.  The most effective way to provide context to large data sets and to share data across departments is a 3D representation of the mine annotated with real-time status updates, sensor readings and production statistics.  Representing mines in this visual way improves the user’s understanding of the situation and simultaneously improves decision-making and communication throughout the mine.

Ramjack’s Visualization and Information Management System is an independent solution that sits on top of both integrated and disparate Monitoring and Management Systems to integrate information horizontally (across the value chain) and vertically (to include field / sensor data) into one coherent platform.  Fully integrated in this fashion, the system breaks down departmental ‘silos’ by providing a simple, scalable and configurable central view, complete with all the pertinent mine information required for advanced decision-making related to production, maintenance and safety. We love to talk about everything mining, we invite you to schedule a demo to understand how integrated, purpose-built visualization tools can deliver proven ROI just as it has to many of our customers.
