In conjunction with Barrick Gold Corporation, which has gold and copper mining operations in North and South America, Africa, Papua New Guinea and Saudi Arabia, MineWare has developed a cloud-based version of its popular Syncromine software module. This system is unique in that it is entirely web-based, hosted in the UK and servicing three Barrick operations in Mali, the DRC and soon Tanzania.
This software has two important functions, both necessary in mining operations. They include, Production monitoring and Machine Maintenance.
The production functionality keeps track of daily production figures with reports being populated to global stakeholders making for improved information flow for proactive management.
As with all MineWare software, this application is able to interface with other existing software systems, such as HR and CAD products, in order to capture relevant information needed to produce up to date reports, such as planned vs actual analysis per machine operator.
The machine Maintenance functionality was developed in order to meet the unique needs of this client, and is used to capture and plan maintenance on fixed and mobile machinery within these specific mining operations.
With full asset registers, operations can now link monthly planning to equipment used daily, enabling improved maintenance planning, resulting in fewer breakdowns.
MineWare software modules are able to interface with legacy systems already in place, while drawing relevant data in order to populate reports. Reports can be viewed on one easy to read screen, showing data in real-time. This enables managers to make up to the minute decisions, thereby positively affecting the bottom line.
Through consolidating various operational data into one easy to use interface, MineWare’s Syncromine Online application is sure to make remote operational management easier, allowing for better planning, implementation and less downtime.
