From geopolitics to environmental concerns, cost optimisation to mineral scarcity, the mining and minerals sector is under more pressure than ever to do more with less. Yet making changes to plant processes can carry big risks and materially impact business models.
Scenario testing presents an opportunity to use the massive volumes of data generated in a plant to explore ‘what if’ scenarios. From these insights, leaders can make more informed decisions about how to optimise outcomes. Leading minerals process plants are using scenario testing to solve for big issues like ESG reporting and greenhouse gas emissions, productivity, forecasting and cost control, as well as more granular metrics like reagent quantities, altered flowsheets and other production variables.
