Employing operation excellence to optimize underground haulage systems

Mining Engineering, 2017, Vol. 69, No. 12, pp. 31-31
Sun, Y.; Sidhom, J.; Fourie, W.


PREVIEW:

 As the mining industry continues to face difficult challenges the need to persistently focus on productivity and utilization of labor and equipment costs will intensify. With these challenges in mind, Komatsu is helping to bring mining performance and analytics to the next level.

By evaluating underground haulage, a significant component of the room and pillar mining value stream, variables have been identified and sensitivities have been performed to show opportunities to balance and streamline throughput. As a result of applying operational excellence tools to the mining environment, Komatsu is seeking to optimize mining performances by limiting waste, simplifying the process, increasing productivity and machine utilization, as well as removing workers from harm’s way.
