    • Hello Fred,

      thanks for your comment.

      I understand that you are not an expert in Mill Products & Mining – so you will probably not find this publication of much interest for you.

      I have posted this in the area ‘SAP for Mill Products & Mining’. I expect that industry folks from Mill Products & Mining are mainly interested in this section of SCN. So I see this as a place to share interesting publications on these industries with industry experts.

      Kind regards,


  • Putting this in context to IT related initiatives – the key message boils down to a “renewed focus

    on productivity through technological innovation and an improved understanding of what happens at the operational level”.

    Sounds obvious, but the tricky part is the second half – how to understand, compare and benchmark, and at the next level identify correlations between operational measures and cost & efficiency.

    OEE I have seen in many places, correlation & visulization of operator’s impact to real cost & profit much rarer. 

    There is a lot of space for prediction and insight. Has anyone yet used SAP Infinite Insight (formerly KXEN) in the mining operations space for this purpose?
