The future of Mining and Metals requires simplification
Companies that buy from mining companies want the products and commodities they order delivered on time and as expected. They want flexible delivery options and no worries about compliance
or safety. Mining companies struggle with this due to significant complexities such as:
- ŸEroding margins from commodity price unpredictability; lower-quality reserves; and inefficient extraction, production, and supply chain processes
- ŸMissed revenue opportunities from limited visibility into product assays, transportation networks, and situational factors in dispersed locations
- ŸDifficult license retention from ineffective regulatory compliance processes and documentation and challenges maintaining safety protocols in dispersed locations
PT Timah is the largest tin producer in Indonesia. Years of growth led to non integrated legacy IT systems with inefficiencies in inventory, forecasting and procurement and production. Working with SAP, Timah can now react very quickly to changes in the global marketplace due to improved visibility into operations and reduced cycle times.
