Remote Planning – Case StudyGreenfield Mining Project- Kalgoorlie Region, WA, Australia

The Challenge

Our client’s new mining project team were looking for ways to improve the delivery of site-based services without impacting effectiveness. During this initial review, it was identified that the ability to find suitably qualified maintenance planners was difficult, impacting the site’s ability to plan and deliver regular maintenance activities effectively.

Working together with site management, EnterpriseIS developed a solution to the provision of this function, which significantly reduced the cost without impacting effectiveness and enabled their key workers to work remotely.

The Solution

The onsite EnterpriseIS Asset Management specialist had already been involved in developing the site asset management system, including the development of the asset register and the implementation of ongoing operations and maintenance activities.

Having already established the site maintenance requirements and asset strategies, EnterpriseIS then undertook a project that would enable the site to transfer all operations and maintenance planning activities to an offsite location, where the following would be conducted for the site team:

• Operations and Maintenance planning for all site activities

• Weekly Operations and Maintenance Task Schedule configured and communicated with a weekly meeting

• Ongoing development and management of the site asset register

• Ongoing Management of site data, including strategy development and modifications as new assets, come on and updates to counters for assets with hours and kilometres.

The Results

At the conclusion of the project, all site operational planning activities had been moved to the remote planning centre, which resulted in the following savings and efficiency gains for the client:

• Reduction in the time allocated to maintenance planning from 44 hours onsite per week to 20 hours offsite per week

• No site-based costs required for maintenance planning (travel, accommodation, site allowance, site desk space)

• All risks associated with recruiting and training maintenance planners have now been transferred to EnterpriseIS
