Introduce new approaches from idea to market
We see a plethora of technology to assist miners in their roles such as fully and semi-autonomous robots, drones, increased use of artificial intelligence, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, digital twins, 3-D and 4-D printing and ever more innovative ways to transform. But the ROI of digital transformation isn’t traditional. Cross-functional teams need to work together with industry experts — removing inefficiencies, automating steps in the processes and changing the ways to go from idea to the market. Experimenting, piloting, learning and adapting will help prioritize the technologies with the biggest impact for each specific situation.
