Pitram unlocks full potential of real-time data in the mining industry

Big Data can be applied to mining operations with greater efficiency and accuracy than ever before, thanks to software innovations such as Pitram from MICROMINE, a fleet management and mine control solution.

With the quantity of data collected and its complexity in the mining industry rapidly on the increase, the ability to handle these large, complex data sets is critical. This has highlighted the need in the mining industry for easy-to-use, fast, function-rich, and fit-for-purpose solutions such as Pitram, MICROMINE South Africa regional manager Renier Strydom comments.

Pitram is a fully-configurable solution that captures, monitors, and reports on operational and production data. It provides real-time analytical capabilities to enable improved decision-making on critical areas such as safety, development, and asset utilisation.

The major advantage of Pitram is that it is both scalable in its approach and agile by design, providing a world-class customised solution for any mining operation, irrespective of existing systems or infrastructure.

“Data is king, and it’s how we interpret, manage, and analyse that data that delivers the real benefit for clients and industry,” Strydom comments. In this regard, the latest trend is for intuitive solutions that are not only user-friendly, but that also promote integration among different software solutions. This trend is becoming prominent due to increased Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications in the mining industry.

“The use of assisted-control equipment is more and more common, while fully autonomous equipment is common in haulage and drilling operations,” Strydom adds. Health and safety is also boosting the need for smarter analytics, with PPE now incorporating sensors to transmit information about potentially hazardous working conditions, for example.

“I believe that ongoing advances in digital technology has the potential to unlock new ways of managing variability and enhancing productivity in the mining industry. Of course, the greatest benefit of this trend will be derived when such technology is integrated across the entire supply chain. This, in turn, will allow for more informed decision-making, as well as more consistent mining operations,” Strydom stresses.

With over 20 offices globally, including South Africa, MICROMINE can importantly offer 24/7/365 support. “Our specialists have the local knowledge to provide solutions that are relevant to your geographic location and operation, maximising the return on your investment,” Strydom highlights. He adds that Pitram has a 100% deployment success rate in over 60 mine sites globally, including some of the most complex and challenging mines in the world.
