Capturing the Industry 4.0 payoff in mining

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.
