Vetasi has now gone live with Maximo at South Deep Goldmine in South Africa. South Deep is one of the most mechanised deep level gold mines in the world.
Maximo is now rolled out to all trackless mining and earth moving machines in the mine and will be rolling out to the surface plant and other parts of the mine within the coming months. Maximo produces daily reports and real time dashboards on equipment utilization and availability.
To improve asset performance management reporting and quality of information, the vision is to roll out Maximo Anywhere underground as a next phase. This will create more accurate dashboards as the time for capturing of equipment availability is reduced. Material and spare part costing information is captured against each machine using an interface to SAP’s supply chain management information.
