Why our clients use our services

Procurement and agreements

Abovesaid procurement which is more often than not followed through by management of the commercial agreement as Clients Representative. Mobile equipment procurement assistance for owner operator applications generally kicks off with estimating mining costs and budget forecasts generated from first principals using formal OEM capital and Life Cycle Costing. OEM enquiries, for both owner maintenance and maintenance and repair contracts (MARC) using major OEM's like Caterpillar, Komatsu, Liebher and Hitachi are followed by mining cost modelling using formal quotations that are integrated and aligned with the Clients mine engineering and production scheduling.

Project lifecycle modelling

TACMIN’s project life-cycle models provide for an interactive link between estimating, project controls and enterprise accounting. Our project life-cycle models share critical information in real-time that provides for the effective implementation of the project up to completion and its delivery. In the initial phase, before the project execution, we develop a thorough understanding of the project, outline a strategy, and assemble a strong owners team to ensure that every aspect of your project is planned out. Your project will meet all your objectives with regards to scope, quality, performance and safety while adhering to your time and budget requirements.

Project implementation

We provide specialised project implementation and 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 project execution and project control solution comprising of a Virtual Project Management Office with Engineering, Cost Management, Project Controls and Operational Management 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.

Did you know our project decision analysis is founded upon

Lean cost and Lean construction principals

Operational improvement

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 of unsatisfactorily operational performance. 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 operational performance problems. Attributed to decades of experience gained by our multi-disciplinary expertise in all aspects of construction and mining resources with the aid of Tacmin's business performance improvement system has enabled us to develop a well-established decision analysis process integrated into the overall project management process, vital for improving project performance. The process above has assisted numerous executives and boards from junior and major listed companies to improve operational performance on several projects globally.
