Mine-to-customer value chain processes are complex, disjointed

Logistics constraints. Market conditions. Multiple stakeholders. Traditional emphasis on production. Organizational complexity. Capturing the information required for decision-making is often time-consuming and cumbersome.

Sustaining and enhancing the sales and operations planning process can be difficult, especially when it must also consider the key performance indicators of individual teams and provide visibility to stakeholders around the globe.

A complex planning system is needed to address and manage all the variables of a mine value chain, which can span multiple time horizons and deal with both internal and external stakeholders.

From the mine face to the end-customer, these matters can compound and complicate the always-present concerns of quality, quantity, and on-time delivery when you’re fulfilling orders for bulk commodity materials to respond to the market.

Almost invariably, a one-size-fits-all approach means opportunities are lost across the value chain. You are unable to respond to changing market conditions, maximize capacity, boost customer satisfaction, and mitigate contractual non-performance penalties such as demurrage costs.
