ABB is an enterprise digital transformation partner experienced both in IT and OT, data science and change management, who can move around the world with clients as their transformation program grows. ABB supports clients in three major trends that are fundamentally transforming the industry into Climate-Smart Mining. First, the shift from diesel to electrification. Second, there is digitalization, which is resulting in increased productivity and more sustainable use of resources while lowering input cost. The third trend is automation, which will also increase productivity and change the way we work. Included are: Mine Location Intelligence; Monitoring and analysis services;Intelligent scenario forecasting; awift remote response resolution;BB's Stockyard Management System; etc.
For example: ABB's Closed Loop Scheduler allows the short-term planner to achieve new levels of efficiency. The AI-based engine automatically considers all constraints for mobile and fixed equipment, including conveyor capacity. In this way the operator can select the optimal equipment usage, and dispatch them, in real time. ABB's operations management system (OMS) with short interval control effectively 'closes the loop' between planned and real-life operation scenarios in open pit and underground mines.
