Increase throughput and improve safety and compliance with kavern

At Biarri EMI, we are passionate about how commercial mathematics can empower miners to make smarter business decisions. To this end, we’ve developed a fully optimised scheduling and short interval control solution for load and haul in underground hard rock mines that maximises throughput, optimises shift plans, and increases safety and compliance.

But, don’t take our word for it. What does Newcrest Mining think?

“I am very impressed with Kavern’s ability to quickly and accurately solve the increasingly critical load and haul fleet optimisation concerns here in Telfer. Kavern has exceeded our expectations and delivered quantitative improvements in the tonne kilometre per hour rates for the trucking fleet and in the utilisation of loaders. It has become an integral tool in improving our capability to highlight and take advantage of short interval control opportunities on a daily basis by reducing planning time and responses to our complex mining interactions. Kavern also improves management oversight through a great visual snap shot of real-time states/availabilities which has been readily accepted by both Newcrest and Byrnecut management” – Brad Brown, Underground Control Room Supervisor – Telfer, Newcrest Mining.

Biarri EMI to exhibit at Australasian Oil and Gas Conference 2019

Biarri EMI is excited to announce that we have accepted a SME exhibiting pod in National Energy Resources Australia’s (NERA) Innovation Station at the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG), taking place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 13 – 15 March 2019.

AOG is a showcase of the latest products and services impacting the oil and gas sector that attracts over 8,000 global visitors, providing opportunities to network and learn about the latest technological and innovative breakthroughs which will drive the industry into the future.

Biarri EMI will join 11 other exciting SMEs exhibiting in the NERA Innovation Station, where we will demonstrate our Distributed Infrastructure Maintenance Optimisation (DIMO) solution and network with industry professionals seeking new technologies to maximise productivity, decrease costs and minimise risk.

DIMO is a Biarri EMI solution focusing on the management, scheduling, and optimisation of our customer’s maintenance workforce for distributed assets such as unconventional gas wells, downstream pipeline infrastructure and distribution networks. Find out more about DIMO by reading our case study.

Maximise productivity, reduce travel time and minimise risk with DIMO

Our Distributed Infrastructure Maintenance Optimisation solution (DIMO) is used to schedule preventative and corrective maintenance across thousands of hectares of upstream wells in Australia. By integrating with the operator’s existing enterprise solutions, DIMO provides a hassle free user experience for planners and maintenance supervisors to reduce time spent manually creating plans, which optimises the utilisation of resources.

BACKGROUND

• Our customers operate and maintain thousands of assets across large regions in central Queensland.
• Operational and maintenance schedules were built manually without the support of mathematical optimisation.

CHALLENGE

• Manual scheduling takes large amounts of time and allows inefficiencies in well visitation and worker travel time.
• Our customers needed an optimisation tool to empower them to develop more efficient schedules.

SOLUTION

• DIMO automatically generates schedules considering thousands of activities and hundreds of workers across multiple weeks.
• DIMO integrates with customers’ key systems and replaces their Excel-based rostering system.
• Deployed on the web-based Biarri Workbench framework.
• Powerful maths is tailored to the specific problem.

RESULTS

• 30% increase in tool time and 20% reduction in travel per activity.
• 10% reduction in repeat visits to wells due to alignment.
• Schedules generated in under 1 hour.
