Successful Metals and Mining Technology Strategies

Advances in low-cost technology can drive productivity and safety benefits at mines just as they have done in other industries.

A successful metals and mining technology strategy should recognize the role of vendors in innovating—without allowing those vendors to dictate the priorities and pace or take an unfair share of the value for themselves. It should also focus on defined outcomes that demonstrate material benefits and erode cultural and organizational resistance to embracing technology. And, although no one knows exactly what new technologies are around the corner, the strategy needs a clear vision about the place and purpose of technology along the entire value chain.

An effective technology strategy includes these critical elements:

A Genuine Commitment to Innovation

Better Vendor Interactions

Rewire Technology and Operations
