Interoperability Working Group


This group aims to facilitate alignment on interoperability of all mining equipment, processes, and operating personnel to ensure that the industry will not be constrained as new technologies emerge. Interoperability is a high priority initiative in the international mining industry because it impacts all stakeholders and is necessary for maximizing the capability and benefit of emerging technologies like automation, integration, and data analytics. While there are many ongoing efforts to enable interoperability, efforts in coordination and collaboration are needed.


Drive collaboration on a range of interoperability initiatives, including identifying and describing the industry-wide requirements for interoperability in mining, addressing industry challenges and developing tools for moving forward.
