“Latent Capacity” aka untapped potential is ubiquitous across the mining and mineral processing industry. We know it’s there, but we can’t always see it. When we see, we don’t always know where to start. And when we start, we find that change is a difficult road. This untapped potential is not due to a lack of effort. Operations and providers to the industry alike are focused on improvement and “closing the gap”. For many, Big data and advanced analytics provide hope for tantalising returns from existing assets. While everyone agrees the stakes are high, the pathway to realising the full potential is fraught with traps for the unwary hence experience is everything.
Attendees will get to appreciate why understanding the Full Potential of a process as a whole is so important and techniques for analysing operations and integrated value chains. This is a critical capability for businesses wanting to understand the value of untapped potential and how it links to targeted improvement activity.
