Many quarry operators, especially in an age of industry consolidation, find themselves having to manage and assist numerous operations. With engineers and geologists supporting multiple sites, applications that enable data to easily be shared between remote and central locations are necessary. This allows head offices to update geological data, develop dig plans, plots, and schedules which can be easily provided to local operations.
Acquiring data from drilling results and other sources, share, protect and secure it, along with geology, planning, and scheduling data is essential for a proper management. Data can be centralized onsite or at a corporate office, and quickly synchronized between locations. Geographically dispersed operations can feed data into a central technical center, allowing engineers and geologists located there to more effectively support the increasing number of quarries for which they are responsible, this reduces staffing and travel costs and increases information accuracy through minimized reaction times and the creation of a single version of true data.
Solutions that provide innovative scheduling experience for productivity and profits as well as a strategic mine planning, are ideal for optimizing and planning multiple quarries.
