Minestream: Purchasing & Supply Business Use Case Study
Mining in Australia is a multi-billion dollar industry which never sleeps. Downtime and loss of production come at enormous cost to mining operations even for short periods of time. With the stakes so high, it is critical to keep business moving and all functions of the business must play a role.
The purchasing function, as in any industry, faces its own set of challenges to minimise cost and provide goods on demand.
The reality is that however far removed they may seem from the frontline, the purchasing hub can directly impact downtime. While the responsibility is great, the nature of purchasing makes them almost invisible when they are performing at their best. But just like the adage of a duck on a pond, there is a lot of work happening beneath the surface.
