The management of physical assets such as equipment, process plants, machinery and vehicles, focuses at a strategic level on establishing, operating and maintaining an asset portfolio that is aligned with the organisation’s strategic objectives, within the context of the regulatory and broader organisational environment.

At an operational management and technical level this necessitates the need for in-depth understanding of asset management principles and processes, enhanced by specialised technical knowledge and techniques related to aspects such as design analysis, data acquisition, condition monitoring, diagnostics and prognostics as well as finite element analysis – all within the context of asset life cycle management.

Asset, Production and Safety Integrity Management (APS-IM) is unique in that it integrates the results derived from assessing the integrity and performance of physical assets, into sound mine engineering principals to inform management decisions within the context of asset life cycles, production and safe operating practices.

Operation centres and control rooms need to function optimally 24/7/365 and therefore employing the most advanced technologies is mission critical. Our partner Questek Advanced Technologies has extensive experience in control room consultation and design, as well as in-depth knowledge of the integration of the...

Globally there is a rapidly growing need to optimally manage physical assets over their entire life cycles, from design through to operation. Traditional factors such as performance and cost drive this need, but factors such as health, safety and environmental impact are gaining importance and therefore need to..

An effective solution to optimal pit extraction, mining sequence, production scheduling and mine plan conformance is of critical importance to achieve desired plant feed grade. Enhancing this with optimal equipment performance and driving down operating cost through savings in equipment maintenance, fuel..

IROC solution outsourced

(Integrated remote operations centre)


Managing an open-pit mine requires access to information in order to monitor activities and assess performance. Trying to understand what information an open-pit mining business has can be challenging because information systems collect and process a vast amount of data in various forms. To flow in the running stream of rapidly changing, increasingly competitive global market scenario and increasingly volatile consumer and market behaviour, management need to analyse accurate and timely information about operations, performance and mine engineering using familiar business terms, in order to gain analytical insight into business problems and opportunities.

Tacmin's outsourced IROC solution supports business analysis and decision making to help our customers better understand their operations and compete in the marketplace.
