Our capabilities

Operational Readiness, Procure & Cost Engineer, Asset Management


The art of decision making is pivotal to effective project management. For more than twenty-four years we performed real-time decision making, risk assessments, valuations and comparisons during industry-related trade-off studies, benchmarking, mine optimisation, operations improvement, equipment performance, mineability studies, capital and operating cost studies with the aid of Tacmin's business performance improvement system. During every stage of the project lifecycle, project managers face a huge array of choices. Furthermore, elements of decision analysis such as analysis of potential alternatives and assessment of project risk are critical during each stage of the project lifecycle. Currently, there are no standard procedures that would sufficiently cover all the multiple-criteria requirements along with a breakdown into the preliminary and main assessment. However, at Tacmin the entire foundation required was created, such as definitions of requirements to an assessment method, selection and accurate description of the various assessment criteria and classification of the target system for typical mining project decision-making problems.

Why our clients use our services

Enquiries & agreements

In addition to cost estimation for civil infrastructure projects such as railroads, single and dual carriageways, earth dams, slimes dams, airports and several others, since 1996 we have generated 1210 mining cost benchmark models for international Blue Chip mining companies, with project values fetching up to US$ 5 billion, during which we simulated the Clients’ mine site conditions and imported geological and mine engineering data basis of up to 100 Gb for more than 12 different commodities - of which the annual ROM production on some exceeded 60,000,000 tons per annum. During this time we have developed and applied resource data basis with complete Life-cycle costing of more than 300 different equipment models and sizes, with hauling equipment that ranges from 25 to 380 payload tons and matching shovels of up to 45 m3 bucket capacity.

Resolving of claims & disputes

Technical & economic decisions to balance costs, risks and performance along assets life cycle.

Unlike most other similar consultancies, Tacmin expertise merges two worlds of engineering during asset performance improvement and mechanical maintenance assignments that assist our clients in making rapid, step-change improvements in operational performance.

Maintenance planning & scheduling that is

 aligned with strategic  engineering objectives

Project cost controls

We provide specialised project cost administration to the global construction, engineering and mining industry and have done so for over 24 years. We add value to every stage of the project lifecycle in delivery of the built environment. From the first estimate to the final account, our complete cost and enterprise management solution comprising of Construction and Engineering Cost Management and Enterprise Accounts, Estimating and Project Controls work seamlessly together providing arguably the most powerful and innovative solution to meet your business needs. Unique to the mining industry is our Operational Readiness Management System (ORMS), an Estimating, Planning & Project Control Solution that links engineering with resources that analyse and optimise mine plan conformance, resource performance and cost – the ultimate project control solution.

Asset Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Mobile maintenance cost benchmarks

Digitally enabled asset reliability,

fleet tracking, maintenance control

conditional monitoring preventative maintenance

Collection, monitoring & reporting of real-time asset performance for static and mobile equipment.

Our unique ability to extract and analyse data, generate predictive diagnostic models and provide easy-to-understand and actionable reports that directly translate into operational efficiencies and bottom-line savings benchmarked against equipment Life-cycle models which are integrated into the engineering process.

Project cost estimations

We compile project life-cycle cost models and trade-off analysis that compare the current status quo with the potential improvement, including a roadmap with execution plan and estimated costs of Life Cycle of Assets supported by financial analysis. The ultimate goal is to obtain complete situational awareness, enhanced by sharing information among multiple secured networks. Combine this with experienced project managers that have a solid track record in practising Lean mining and Lean construction principles since 1996, and you have a win-win situation on your hands.
