Sandvik announced OptiMine Analytics, an upgrade to OptiMine that offers predictive capabilities and actionable dashboards. The system features easy-to-use, real time, automated dashboards with comprehensive process overview to drive process improvements, Sandvik reported. By assessing equipment effectiveness, the system pinpoints bottlenecks and areas for fleet and operation improvement in terms of mechanical availability, utilization and the quality of production. Insights into operator actions improve safety by identifying areas for training proactively, the company reported. The system assimilates data from other OptiMine digital tools, including Monitoring, Location Tracking, Scheduler and Task Management, as well as other mining and maintenance systems. The underlying technology platform is a result of the Sandvik and IBM partnership.
