For the mining industry to achieve digitalization, interoperability and system integration, it is important for it to establish consistent terminology and data.
This guideline provides a classification framework for operational activity in surface mining that will enable meaningful performance analysis and industry-wide comparison. It covers most common surface mining activities, associated status and event descriptions, and the time categories needed to classify the activities and generate the most widely used mining operational KPIs.
Recommendations for the consistent classification of common surface mining operational activities, statuses, and events into standard time categories
A Time Usage Model, which is a visual representation of the recommended classification framework identified above
Proposed definitions for common industry operational key performance indicators (KPIs) for reporting mining asset availability and utilization
2019 Nov | Guideline is under Working Group review.
A Standardized Time Classification Framework for Surface Mining: Operational Definitions, Time Usage Model, and Key Performance Indicators is being reviewed by Working Group members, which are providing their inputs and feedback.
