The Interoperability Strategy aims to coordinate collaboration on interoperability. This initiative is funded by BHP and Rio Tinto.
The future of mining is digital and requires interoperability to be realized. Advanced digital technologies are enhancing – and in many cases revolutionizing – equipment, processes, planning and execution. To enable this future, we need common definitions, standards, language, decision-making criteria and data exchange capabilities to improve how people, equipment and software work together.
Alignment on interoperability is essential for enabling digital technologies and will ultimately lead to more productive, safe and cost-effective mines.
There is no easy solution. However, there are four critical elements to success:
