Mining Automation

The Problems and Challenges in Mining

Mine operators rely on technology through almost every stage of the mining process. For the collection and management of exploratory data through to the operation of massive machines, mine operators depend on the effective collection and movement of information.


Ensuring information moves quickly, accurately and efficiently between systems to enable this complex operation is critical. Intelligent automation, driven by robotic process automation (RPA), ensures this flawlessly.

How Automation can help

Mines depend on heavy equipment that operates safely and efficiently. Sensor data from those machines can be collected and used to drive maintenance and repair schedules.

That process can be automated by using intelligent automation to collect data and move it between systems. For example, a fault that is detected may trigger the software to alert the mine operator and schedule that machine for maintenance in real time.

Automation can be used to automate a number of back-office processes as well, such as travel, leave, contractor and other HR policies, accounts payable and receivable, and reporting.
