The report lists optimised scheduling and control as “a use case that will provide a high return on investment” for companies embarking on tech-enabled transformation.
Commit Works’ Fewzion and Short Interval Control systems are tech solutions that act across all of McKinsey and Company’s “three engines for change”:
- They harness mobile technology and analytics to support productivity, transparency, safety and decision-making.
- They modify the way that employees work together by giving teams access to a single plan in real time and enabling progress to be tracked – breaking down silos, allowing plans to be adjusted as necessary and making people accountable for the work they do.
- They change the behaviours and mindsets of teams and supervisors, through a system based on commitment, trust and accountability.
Commenting on the opportunities provided by mobile solutions for underground mining, the report notes that enabling supervisors to communicate with work teams in real time lets them “react and adapt to changing conditions, allowing an underground mine to function like a modern, sophisticated open-pit operation”. Furthermore, short interval control allows companies to “examine where decisions are made, and by whom, and empower their workers to make informed, data-driven decisions, quickly and safely”.
