Engaging early allowed us to clarify and understand business priorities and challenges of our global mining customer, and enabled them to experience how our digital portfolio of ABB Ability™ solutions for mining industry
can unlock value across the entire value chain. Ideas and requirements were outlined and further specified, tested and evaluated in follow-up meetings.
e.g. During a value discovery workshop we could put customer data into the Value Calculator - ABB Ability™ Expert Optimizer for mining to estimate the potential for OPEX reduction
in annual use of reagents and other grinding consumables. We also calculated possible annual value from increased throughput
and better minerals recovery and could answer the question whether the stabilization of load would lead to a lower specific energy consumption per same tone milled.
ABB worked with the participants to define follow-up plans
as a deliverable of the workshop. From initial idea all the way to concrete digital solutions, we walked this path together as a team, hand in hand.
