Lunch & Learn – March

Join us for our first MEC Mining WA Lunch and Learn session presented by Technical Services Manager, Erin Sweeney on Improving Operational Performance Through Data Management!

Mine sites are collecting increasing amounts of data at a faster and a faster pace on the performance of their operations, if not harnessed properly this can be overwhelming; and many mine sites are not using this data to intelligently inform decisions in their daily operations. We will discuss how to leverage your data, processes and systems to arm your people with the right information to make the best decisions for improved operational performance and throughput.

Date: 10 March

Time: 12 pm – 1 pm
