SmartRView enables improved operational efficiency

Operator Evaluation and Coaching

SmartRView can characterize and rank the performance of your operators in terms of efficiency and productivity. Armed with this information, supervisors can incentivise good behavior and focus remedial training and corrective measures on low-end performers.

Operational Alarms

SmartRView can raise alarms in response to operational loss scenarios which may not represent diagnostic hazards. Further, SmartRView can attribute financial loss amounts to these events. Dozer long-walks, long-idles, dump-body tipping engine over and under speeds events, are all examples of activities impacting efficiency but not captured as machine health events.

Safely Extend Refueling Intervals

SmartRView reports for real time measured fuel consumption allowing for increase productivity by safely extending refueling intervals

Operate to Efficiency

Establish optimal targets for haul road speed limits, payload tonnage, refueling intervals and more, based on accurate fuel per ton metrics.

Equipment allocation

Select appropriately sized equipment for specific activities. Park the least economical assets when production is bottlenecked by other factors.

FOCUS CASE STUDY

Challenge: Increase haul truck efficiency through improved operator performance

A large Latin American mining operation engaged training consultants to deliver simulator-based coaching. Upon return from training, there was no way to establish the impact of the adjusted behaviors, and no way to evaluate or influence the resulting benefit over time.

SmartRView was installed on several haul trucks to measure haulage efficiency and productivity. A customized feature was developed to establish the level of adherence to the newly learned behaviors. The mine supplied operator rosters and allocation details which enabled SmartRView to report on individual operator performance. This was done by stitching together periods of operation across multiple shifts and multiple trucks.

Results:

The data was compelling and showed a significant and measurable improvement in operator efficiency upon return from training. SmartRView is used to evaluate operator efficiency and provides operator rankings normalized by equipment. These rankings inform operator recognition and re-training priorities.
