All Projects

  • Data Exchange for Mine Software Project

    This project group, a group of software vendors and mining companies with a shared vision for a more open and interoperable path forward, is developing the Open Mining Format (OMF), an open-source file specification for 3D data interoperability.
  • Mobile Equipment Open Data Project

    This guideline aims to establish guiding principles, definitions, and a consensus framework for access to onboard data from mobile equipment across the mine cycle. The first version was published in 2016, and version two will address incomplete datasets and additional types of mobile equipment.
  • Operational Definitions and KPIs Project

    This project aims develop standard definitions and terminology for production data and operational KPIs for reporting and classifying operational activities. It classifies activities into a Time Usage Model (TUM).
