The key to achieving PEACE OF MIND- reducing production variabilit

Over the years, we have noticed some surprising benefits when the organisation focuses on maximising flow through the bottleneck and aligning upstream and downstream departments to ensure it never starves or blocks. The obvious advantage is that output increases which delivers increased profit and decreased cost per ton.


However, as shown in the image below, the increase in output is accompanied by improved production stability. In combination, improved stability at higher output ensures:


Confidence that production will meet monthly operational targets

Freeing up of managerial time and attention

Improved safety performance

Increased shelf life of the mine plan

Enhanced collaboration between planning and operations

Better planning and more effective allocation of resources


In summary: When we apply TOC we automatically reduce the variability in production flow and mining executives gain peace of mind while delivering superior operational results.
