About MAMMA – Executive Summary

The project deals with a software system to improve maintenance for the whole mine by collecting machine and infrastructure data and present analysed conditions in a clear way. Therefore the data is collected from existing systems on machines and in the mine. This new product will lead to extended maintenance intervals and increased availability. Dependencies will be pointed out and could be handled to improve the production.

Figure 1 illustrate the complexity of a mine with several different kinds of machines and surveillance tasks at the surface and underground.

Based on the situation with all the different kind of information, a strong need of data handling tools for gathering, aggregate and review are necessary. This data will visualize the condition of the total mine to manage the service work. The results will be a reduction of incidents, an increasing availability of the mine production and will enable competitive mining operations also in challenging environments for providing a sustainable supply of raw materials.
