Data Workflow Implementation and Management
The mining industry has dramatically increased the amount of data that is being captured and utilized every day through fleet management and automated data collection systems. The amount of data can be overwhelmingly difficult to incorporate into daily operations and decision making.
Gain practical knowledge of the techniques involved in implementing and managing operations data into daily reporting and decision making with an emphasis on KPIs, data collection points, and processes. This workshop will include presentations using real examples with theoretical alternatives, discussing their pros and cons.
Fleet Management Administration and Optimization
With all the features of a modern Fleet Management System (FMS), where do you begin with adapting site practices to best utilize your FMS? How do you take advantage of the near instant access to operations data?
Learn the overall administration of our FMS, optimization usage, major features, and product roadmap. The workshop will include presentations on best practices, change management, and discussions of real-world issues and solutions.
Mine Planning Tips and Tricks
Time is of the essence for busy mine planners who are under pressure to balance demands for greater productivity while reconciling their plans with reality. Learn tips and tricks to better navigate our mine planning software interface and to streamline your everyday workflows.
The workshop will help you find ways to improve your software experience and leverage our growing technological solutions.
Planning and Operation Integration
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are quickly becoming prominent in the earth sciences and engineering fields. UAS photogrammetry is being applied all over the world for their ability to collect high-resolution, multi-perspective, multi-sensor imagery for open-pit site characterization.
We offer an array of photogrammetry solutions for planning and operations. Learn the best strategies for integrating data between these platforms to obtain accurate, real-time results.
Geologic Modeling Workflow
Sigma, Geologic and Logic are recent additions to our mine planning software suite and significantly assist the creation of process workflows for modeling with security roles, an audit trail, and flexible data sources in mind.
Learn more about these solutions and their capabilities for user-friendly workflows applied to drillholes, modeling, and everything in-between.
Mine Planning Workflow
We’ll dive deep into our extensive suite of mine planning solutions to cover resource models, reserves in final pit, and short-term plans. The workshop will cover how these solutions can help you solve increasingly difficult challenges within the mine planning realm.
In addition to training, HxGN LIVE’s Mining track presents an exciting array of technology, including mine planning and modeling software, fleet management and machine guidance products, collision avoidance and vehicle intervention systems, and survey and monitoring solutions. See the latest innovation to help underground mines together with our mobile tablet-based task management solutions. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of how we are integrating all this technology into an IoT-enabled digital platform.
