Mining Execution Systems
The Infosys Mining practice develops bespoke Mining Execution System (MES) platforms to manage continuous and batch processes in open cast as well as underground mines. We capitalize on decades of experience in transforming operations at global manufacturing enterprises to drive production efficiency in the mining industry.
Our experts analyze the existing operations landscape and IT applications portfolio to design the MES solution and prioritize implementation of each module. Our MES platforms integrate processes, workflows, and operational systems including laboratory information, fleet, customer, logistics, inventory, warehouse, and stockpile management systems. Real-time visibility into operations, maintenance and engineering data improves quality, facilitates production accounting, and minimizes unplanned downtime.
We combine automation and best practices to create a mining ecosystem that streamlines operations, enables continuous improvement, and supports project management. Our templates for a ‘connected mine’ track the transformation of metallic and non-metallic ore bodies as well as key performance metrics. Our dashboards for reporting and analytics span mission-critical as well as mining support systems, which facilitates better management of materials delivery, costs and risks.
