GMG Interoperability Definition and Principles White Paper

Scope and Description

Previously the “Interoperability Definitions and Roadmap guideline,” this white paper describes high-level foundation and reference on interoperability in mining based on input that GMG has received from the industry over five years. This white paper describes a high-level foundation and reference on interoperability in mining based on input that GMG has received from the industry over five years. It aims to provide broad context on interoperability in order to accommodate a global landscape with varied maturity and regulatory frameworks.

How this can be used to enable interoperability in mining.

By sharing industry input on the drivers and context around interoperability in mining, stressing the value of a collaborative approach, identifying an aligned industry definition, and set of guiding principles, this white paper is intended to be a foundation and reference for more focused initiatives.

Interoperability Definition

Interoperability is the ability of two or more systems, components, or processes to exchange information so they can act on this information to achieve business and operational outcomes. Interoperability has two fundamental constructs:

  1. The exchange of information, which can be bidirectional
  2. The executions of actions initiated by the exchanged information.

Stakeholders

Key stakeholders are mining companies, OEMs, and OTMs.

Accessibility model: Open

Status

Final review. Publication aimed for Q2 2021.
