The success of local company Pulse Mining Systems’ state-of-the-art mining industry visualisation and analytics products has led to the creation of Pulse Analytics.
The new Pulse Analytics offering is available to any business in any industry and works beyond enabling real-time reporting, accessibility from mobile devices and the capacity to link to machine data and the internet of things.
Pulse Analytics is a full end-to-end solution encompassing in-built governance mechanisms with the ability to utilise both structured and unstructured data from diverse sources and provide a wide range of interactive output options.
Unique to Pulse Analytics is the ability to develop the apps using the framework built around the clients’ particular key performance indicators (KPI’s). The apps are designed to facilitate decision-making at the operational and tactical level (rather than only being executive-level dashboards), and a working prototype can be rapidly deployed to clients for user testing within a couple of weeks.
The initial collection of approximately 20 targeted tactical analytic apps developed using the new Pulse Analytics framework held the purpose of helping miners by providing insight into specific productivity bottlenecks and pain points and were based on mining industry specific KPI’s.
Pulse Mining Director, Ash Bosworth, who leads the development of Pulse Analytics, underlines the point that the analytics framework is business and industry agnostic.
“The merging of IT and operational technology is perhaps the biggest opportunity for innovation and productivity improvement within any industry,” Ash said.
“This has been amply demonstrated in the success of deploying several of the mining-focused apps to miners in the Hunter Valley. For instance, one miner has reported productivity increases from using Pulse Mining’s Gate Road Analytics app with its Continuous Miners in the operating rate of 3.2%, and a 2.77% increase in tonnes produced.
“This translates to increased production worth approximately $2.5 million to $3 million per year for a single mine site.”
Like most overnight success stories, Pulse Mining’s success has taken years of work behind the scenes. Pulse has been working closely with their clients (mostly mining companies) forover 30 years to meet their needs in terms of their operational and business data, and for approximately 20 years in providing analytics and visualisations of this data to help facilitate effective business decision-making.
