Poor visibility No clear view of factors driving end-to-end performance across mining value chain.
Siloed operations A lack of integrated decision making across the business.
Unintegrated planning ‘Patched together’ planning leading to high variability, shifting operational constraints and an over reliance on buffers.
Forecast inaccuracy Lack of ability to forecast accurately due to high levels of variability in operational performance.
Poor risk identification Deterministic scheduling; open loop planning assumptions and the lack of systemised processes.
Ineffective KPIs Creating a reactive culture focused on symptoms, rather than the root cause of poor performance.
