Abstract
The Industrial Internet of Things is opening opportunities for mining and metals companies to pursue visibility, safety, and efficiency like never before. There are many aspects of this industry that make it an ideal candidate for transformation. These include large physical environments, changing market and environmental conditions, and the massive size and amount of equipment. Additionally, the challenges of assessing asset conditions against maintenance schedules and logistical constraints must be met. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is at the heart of this transformation. It connects people, machines, items, and services to streamline the flow of information, enable real-time decisions, and open new opportunities in mining and metals. Leading companies are already investing billions in the Industrial Internet of Things and realizing returns that range from increased asset uptime and efficient predictive maintenance to autonomous fleets of vehicles able to move more goods. This paper will be talking about various digital applications available for the Metals and Mining industry. Companies can use advanced analytics to extract management-relevant information from the large amounts of unstructured data that they generate. This information can then be used to improve how mines are run and to make better-informed and speedier decisions across the full range of the mining business processes. The applications start from design & engineering followed by supply chain management, production & maintenance management, transport & logistics management. This paper will briefly discuss about variety of enterprise level real time performance solutions in various fields of the Metals and Mining industry.
