Operations Reporting & KPIs

Information is a fundamental requirement for effective business management and value creation at each level of the Resources Value Chain. We know how to locate, interpret, integrate and expose information that is typically buried in an organisation, to drive real improvements in decision making and control. We understand the key measures that support best practice operations and can facilitate agreement across an organisation on the meaning, value and opportunities presented by its information assets.

The graveyard of Operations Reporting solutions in the resources sector is full indeed. Sadly the advice and solutions foisted upon most organisations has been obsessed with aggregated data for the benefit of central functions, retrospectively focused KPIs and/or IT architecture purity. In so doing, the key benefits and challenges of operations reporting are consistently missed, related projects doomed to fail and substantial financial and emotional investment lost. We believe operations reporting is primarily about :

  • enabling the effective collaboration of operational management teams to optimise their operations
  • providing realistic decision making capability to operational managers within timeframes that allow them to actually make a difference

Moreover, without truly recognising and accommodating the specific anomalies of the resources sector, which underpin the quality of available data, even a well aligned project will founder. Operations data anomalies reflect the reality of mine production system's ability to capture, validate and aggregate production data to support shift, daily, weekly and monthly operations decision making. Typical factors include but are not limited to – inaccurate mining material movements, downtime events changed post shift, reallocation of mining equipment, inability to distinguish product and waste material, inaccurate reserves estimates, changing quality profiles within mine design blocks and sampling variability.

BEDROCKmg understands how these factors influence the management and decision making process from the shift level through to monthly reporting. We know the limitations presented by inappropriate production systems and data architectures and have a deep understanding of the relevant measures and KPIs. We have strategies for leveraging your existing systems investment to make the best use of your operational information.
