Tap the full potential of your mine operations
Although individual systems are expected to generate gains by themselves, only a proper integration of those technologies can unleash the full potential of digital transformation. Based on this principle, Siemens has developed a holistic architecture concept to support mining customers to implement digital solutions, with a strong focus on eliminating data silos and increasing collaboration across different departments such as engineering, operations, planning and maintenance. The ultimate target is to create a fully integrated ecosystem, based on the following pillars:
- Vertical integration from field level to enterprise management level;
- Horizontal integration from engineering to operations; and
- Continuous improvement process enhanced by digital applications.
With our digitalisation portfolio, we open up new ways to enhance productivity. Cutting-edge solutions are the way forward, and that means defining sustainable enterprise digital architecture, selecting appropriate technologies and ensuring seamless integration.
