IMARC 2016: James Stoddart, Principal - Corporate Consulting, AMC Consultants
The final session on day two of Austmine's Technology stream saw miners and METS discuss Operational Excellence and how the industry can drive productivity across the entire mining value chain. James Stoddart, Principal Mining Engineer, AMC Consultants presented on the topic of "Productivity is a Cultural Mindset: Embedding an Attitude of Productivity into your Organisation".
James began by summarising the current situation in the mining industry and within many METS companies - there is more data than ever before and more KPIs to hit, but they aren't necessarily leading to better outcomes. He then spoke about making the right KPIs that will actually drive performance, requiring different measures for the short, medium and long term. The presentation concluded with four key messages about setting KPIs in the mining sector, which can be viewed in the presentation below.
