Connected Mine

Enabling safer, sustainable, cleaner, profitable, intelligent operations.

The industry is changing for the better

Mining is taking a new path, where safety and sustainability are dominating the narrative. The industry as a whole is working toward a redefined purpose to steward resources and make the world a better place for all.

Safety

Priorities are to protect the workforce and community lives, secure livelihoods and the environment, and safeguard assets with cyber security

Sustainability

Climate change is driving the energy transition—reduced water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions—and the circular economy

Operational excellence

Achieve productivity and margin improvements by leveraging data, analytics and integrated autonomous operations

Workforce

Changing demographics and human + machine = new ways of learning, working and, ultimately, increasing performance

Stakeholders

All stakeholders are considered equal, with a marked increase in responsible investors and a focus on environment, social and governance (ESG) factors

Customers

83% of consumers believe it’s important or extremely important for companies to design products that are meant to be reused or recycled*

Let’s push for intelligence everywhere

The value of a connected mine lies in digging deep into the wealth of data available across the entire value chain to provide integrated, end-to-end situational awareness and systemic management.

Connecting people, equipment, data and insights across mine, plant, rail and ports, our solutions harness advanced digital technologies—such as data science and machine learning, data engineering and artificial intelligence architecture—for intelligent asset management. Operators gain a whole new world of intelligence and predictive insights to enable faster, smarter decision making for better outcomes.

By monitoring everything from road conditions and truck performance to specific equipment productivity and worker fatigue, the Accenture Connected Mine solution provides accurate operational insights to those who need it, when it matters. This creates the capability to make data-driven, value- and risk-based decisions.

That means intelligent operations are safer, sustainable and more efficient.
