Today, the mining, minerals and metals industry faces some of its greatest challenges ever:
- Environmental impact issues
- Raw material supply
- Critical labor shortages in some regions
- Energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions issues
As a result, the industry must change and adopt new operating modes and technologies, or face a very uncertain future.
Often overlooked by mining organisations because of its focus on smart products and engineering-driven manufacturing, Industry 4.0’s principles have much to offer the mining sector in regards to interoperability, information transparency, decentralised decision making, technical augmentation etc.
