SOME OF OUR SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS

STORYCHART

BSC is a digital partner to DPM. We’ve generated a number of insightful diagnostics and reports for their sites. Through automation, the process has been expedited. Reduced the turnaround time for corporate reporting.

DIAGNOSTICS AND REPORTING

BSC developed a reporting and diagnostic tool, which integrated user inputs, allowing for improved visibility on deviations to the plan; thus allowing improved planning and execution. Improved compliance to mine plan.

RAIL NETWORK QUEUE MODEL

Simulating for the impact of queuing on the cycle times of their trains across the rail network. Determined cycle times for USD 100M improvements.

NEW MINING TECHNOLOGY VISUALISATION

Demystifying the complexities and vision for the new layout, technologies, processes and activities in the mechanised mine of the future. Created excitement and buy-in for the mine of the future.

ATTRIBUTION ANALYSES

BSC’s unique Attribution Analysis was applied across the whole corporation, providing the CEO with a full view of how changes in the physical drivers impacted on the profit for the company. Critical decisions made easy.

DIAGNOSTICS THROUGH IOT

Optimising the fleet at one of our clients mine, allowed for a reduction in fleet size while also increasing production. This resulted in reduced costs and increased margins. Reduction of fleet size on site.

STRATEGIC SCENARIO PLANNING

Modelling solution to run different strategic scenarios quickly and easily, to improve the quality of decision making for a major expansion drive. Supported investment decisions for global expansion.

HAUL FLEET OPTIMISATION

Simulating, and improving, truck cycle times for an open pit coal mine resulting in 20% reduced hauling costs. 20% cost reduction.

BULK SALES PRICE STRUCTURES

Statistically modelling transactional sales coupled with vendor information to determine the optimal discount points to maximise sales. 90% growth in sales within 3 months of change.

COST MODELLING PLATFORM

Detailed cost benchmarking solution for different commodities and mining operations. The solution is used by CRU’s banking and mining clients globally. Created significant licensing revenue from global clients.

TARIFF RECOMMENDATION ENGINE

Simulating, forecasting & re-rating subscriber spend and usage behaviour over 24 months to proactively recommend appropriate tariffs at contract renewal stage. Live system used in every MTN store nationwide.

VR SAFETY TRAINING

Fully immersive solution for underground practical barring training in which participants learn the correct techniques for “Competent B” certification. R4.7m annual labour cost saving.

PLAN VALIDATION

Simulation of the loading operation of a Greenfields diamond mine. Exact fleet size for optimal operations determined 18 months in advance. Determined exact fleet size, 18 months before start-up.

#HEALTHYDATA VR TRAINING

Changing the nature of dialogues about data by highlighting the emotive aspects of the internal campaign. Helped create a data driven culture at the bank.
