Cours de Planification Minière Stratégique Avancé

La planification stratégique intégrée des mines est l’une des tâches les plus cruciales de l’industrie minière. La plupart des personnes impliquées dans la planification stratégique des mines maximisent de multiples objectifs en conflit les uns avec les autres, comme maximiser le tonnage ou la teneur en métaux des ressources minérales, maximiser le tonnage extrait et transporté, maximiser la récupération du traitement, minimiser les coûts, etc. Ça vous semble familier! L’objectif doit être que toutes les fonctions d’une mine travaillent ensemble à la maximisation de la VAN.

Pour atteindre cet objectif de maximisation de la VAN, la planification minière doit programmer chaque tâche de haut niveau et la faire fonctionner en synchronisation vers le même objectif. Cet objectif doit être fixé simultanément par zone dans une mine, pour toutes les zones d’une mine ainsi que pour plusieurs mines, y compris certaines exploitations minières souterraines dans une grande société. La collaboration doit surmonter la concurrence au sein de la société minière.

La planification optimale, y compris les stocks (tampons) et les autres sources de dépenses et de revenus du flux de travail, doit être équilibrée simultanément à temps pour la durée de vie de la mine (LOM) afin de maximiser la VAN. C’est beaucoup plus que la simple conception, la planification et la logistique indépendamment par les différents membres du groupe.

Le cours de 3 jours de Salvo Global sur l’optimisation stratégique intégrée de la planification minière fournira aux participants une compréhension claire de la planification des activités minières, de l’analyse exploratoire des données et des outils de validation pour faciliter et améliorer efficacement la VAN du projet. Les délégués en apprendront également davantage sur l’analyse des flux de trésorerie et feront rapport sur la base des normes internationales. Le cours sera présenté en utilisant la combinaison de la théorie et l’application pratique pour maximiser l’applicabilité des connaissances acquises à partir du cours.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Apprenez à utiliser efficacement les fonctionnalités avancées du logiciel Whittle ou de tout logiciel d’optimisation de la planification minière
  • Comprendre et utiliser SIMO (Simultaneous Mine Optimization) ou les algorithmes de flux en réseau
  • Découvrez, comprendre et appliquer les dernières méthodes d’optimisation des fosses (mine de jour et/ou souterraine)
  • Découvrez l’importance de la préparation des données du modèle de blocs pour la planification minière
  • Maîtriser les meilleures pratiques en matière de planification stratégique intégrée des mines
  • Comprendre pourquoi l’analyse des données est essentielle pour faire un plan minier fiable
  • Déterminer comment échanger les entrées et les sorties de l’optimisation de la planification minière
  • Déterminer comment valider, rapprocher et communiquer les résultats d’optimisation
  • Comprendre les principes fondamentaux de l’optimisation de la planification minière et la façon de les appliquer dans la pratique
  • Découvrez comment SIMO peut être utilisé pour améliorer la planification minière
  • Apprendre comment créer le meilleur plan minier intégré

Overview

Maintenance’s key objective is to increase uptime without over-doing maintenance and the challenge lies in how to determine the right mix of Preventive Maintenance and Predictive Maintenance. Many organizations also find themselves struggling to put in place an effective Maintenance regime to improve equipment integrity. The concept of Preventive and Predictive maintenance is extensively known, and the potential benefits are widely accepted, but still, many maintenance practitioners have failed to successfully take advantage of the techniques and technology. By mastering techniques like the PF-Curve and Statistical Analysis and the latest condition monitoring techniques, participants will be able to prevent avoidable equipment failures and associated production losses and finally break the reactive maintenance cycle.

Key Objectives

  • Adapt advance techniques such as PF Curve and statistical analysis to optimize your maintenance program
  • Analyse and improve your existing maintenance program and eliminate or reduce your current failures
  • Minimize waste in Preventive Maintenance (PM) activity to diminish unnecessary costs
  • Master advanced techniques such as statistical analysis and PF curve to optimize predictive maintenance
  • Distinguish why PM & PdM fail and how to make it more effective
  • Gain insights into Predictive (PdM) & Condition Monitoring techniques like oil analysis and vibration analysis

Essentials of Instrumentation & Process Control

The field of process measurement and control is changing at a dramatic rate. Measurements and accuracies that would have been thought of as impossible to achieve are now commonplace. However, unless applied correctly, huge resources can be squandered to no avail.

Research carried out by International Society of Automation and other bodies indicates that up to 75% of all control loops will oscillate when operated in automatic. Much of the blame can be put, not on the measuring instruments themselves, but on lack of knowledge, misapplication and misunderstanding of the technologies that are available.

Salvo Global’s 5-day online workshop, ‘Advanced Instrumentation and Process Control’, examines some of the latest process measurement and control technologies and how marginal gains and incremental advances have revolutionised the industry. This course will cover theoretical knowledge supported by practical application and activities. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop, design, test build and improve their current instrumentation system.

Top Learning Objectives

Advanced Instrumentation & Process Control

The field of process measurement and control is changing at a dramatic rate. Measurements and accuracies that would have been thought of as impossible to achieve are now commonplace. However, unless applied correctly, huge resources can be squandered to no avail.

Research carried out by International Society of Automation and other bodies indicates that up to 75% of all control loops will oscillate when operated in automatic. Much of the blame can be put, not on the measuring instruments themselves, but on lack of knowledge, misapplication and misunderstanding of the technologies that are available.

This Salvo Global’s workshop, ‘Advanced Instrumentation and Process Control’, examines some of the latest process measurement and control technologies and how marginal gains and incremental advances have revolutionised the industry. This course will cover theoretical knowledge supported by practical application and activities. Attendees will have the opportunity to develop, design, test build and improve their current instrumentation system.

              “It was interesting. The trainer was very active in displaying the reality through theoretical. He is experienced widely in the field. In fact we actually learnt a lot and involved in discussions.”

              Advanced Earned Value Management (EVM) for Projects

              One of the most critical problems that project management professionals face is the management of the performance on their project. The two most common challenges a project manager faces in any industry are cost and schedule overruns. In many instances there is no forewarning; schedule slips, costs soar and often quality is also impacted; the project manager is faced with the near impossible task of explaining why each impact occurred and why the root-causes were not addressed early in the project.

              Performance measurement as the basis to manage projects, programs and portfolios, is becoming increasingly important for project-based organizations. Developed as joint effort between NASA and the US Department of Defence (DoD), back in the mid-60s, Earned Value Management (EVM) has been maturing and evolving over the last decades as the global de facto standard for performance measurement and project control, having deserved the attention of the most prominent standardization organizations like ISO, CPM, AACE International and the Project Management Institute (PMI), all of which have recently developed global standards specific for the implementation, adoption and certification in Earned Value Management.

              Salvo’s masterclass will provide stakeholders with reliable data and quantitative information about the project status and performance, so that more effective decisions can be devised to improve a project’s success. The adoption of EVM implies a cultural change towards objectivity, proactivity and opportunity management, where variation, deviations and changes are all the source for developing knowledge, gaining better understanding and improving a project. EVM is also the foundation for auditability in projects. The traditional alternatives to project control without EVM is the sole use of intuitive and empirical decision-making based on personal experience confined to managers’ “comfort-zones”, the use of financial cash-flow control metrics (which clearly fail to see the whole picture), or, at best, “home-made” metrics which do not capitalize on existing standards knowledge, nor provide a basis for benchmarking, a common-language, auditability and a basis for continuous improvement. Knowing EVM and being updated to the latest developments constitutes a key requirement for all professionals involved in making or influencing management and business decisions in projects, programs and portfolios.

              Top Learning Objectives

              • Manage the use of the Earned Value Management (EVM) project control method as an essential decision-making tool for the success of projects and programs
              • Understand the added value and the benefits of EVM in the overall management of a project-based organization
              • Recognize how to use EVM effectively as a key tool for communication among the project stakeholders and with executive management
              • Learn all the required technical knowledge to implement the EVM method in real project environments
              • Know how to integrate effectively the EVM method with: the scope definition (WBS), the project budget, the project schedule, the risk process, and with the organizational responsibilities (OBS/RAM)
              • Analyse and understand the essential technical and organizational requirements to implement effectively the EVM method in projects and organizations
              • Differentiate the importance and benefits of maintaining a data base of EVM metrics of past projects as the basis for controls and continuous improvement
              • Know how to explore the benefits of software tools to support the practical implementation of the EVM method
              • Discover how to apply the EVM concepts to program and portfolio management
              • Master the international EVM standards from PMI, AACE International, CPM and ISO, and understand the future trend of EVM as a key and essential performance management tool
