Finding people and partners committed to your goals

Every business has a multitude of goals that contribute to its profitability, such as minimized downtime, improved maintenance efficiency, improved process efficiency, and lower parts costs, as well as capital efficiency, such as reduced capital expenditure, reducing inventory, and leasing.

Typically a number of challenges prevent a business from reaching these goals:

  • Access to labor – finding, training and retaining sufficiently skilled labor
  • Equipment knowledge – how to get most out of equipment, operational best practices, experience from similar mines and configurations
  • Third-party business alignment – do suppliers share the same objectives, who takes overall responsibility when things go wrong?
  • Cost variability – transaction-based supply makes business planning even more challenging
  • Net working capital – high inventory and capital costs, expensive tools to execute maintenance
