PWC Publication – Mine: A confidene Crisis
PWC has published some good material on the mining industry. It shows some background on the mining industry trends and developments.
My opinion: please don't use SCN as a bulletin board.
Thanks a lot.
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.
Ursula - to add to what Fred said, I would expect a blog to contain more than 2 sentences and a link. Please consider adding more context to your blogs in the future.
Thank you for listening.
thank you for reading my reply to Fred.
Hi Ursula - for future reference regarding blogs, I recommend Between You and Me: Think-Blog-Think by Jason Cao
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?
(Seefor more details)
