RPM showcases game changing technology

first_imgThe RPM booth at MINExpo includes a live planning and scheduling environment using virtual reality at this year’s MINExpo. Chief Marketing Officer, Michael Baldwin said, “We are genuinely excited about what we are bringing to the mining industry. We want miners to be able to fully immerse themselves in our live planning & scheduling environment using virtual reality to experience the next generation of mining for themselves.”RPM’s Strategic Partner, SAP, has a presence at the RPM booth. Together, RPM and SAP have realised the vision that enterprise solutions, below the line in ‘operations’, will be what mining companies need to survive and thrive in the current and future challenging economic market conditions. Not only has RPM delivered six new products in the last 12 months but it has demonstrated how important an integrated mine is – below the line and above the line. SAP is a key partner and RPM showcased this industry-first collaboration at MINExpo.Baldwin continued, “MINExpo 2016, presents a platform for RPM to transport the mining industry into the next generation, virtual world of mining. A world where operations become more digitalised and connected.”RPM has been working with key partners including Modular Mining, SAP and Schneider Electric to create the experience of the next generation digital world at MINExpo. In collaboration with key partners, RPM is running a dedicated live demonstration centre, giving the mining industry the opportunity to immerse themselves into the digital mine and truly experience what is on the horizon for the industry. Baldwin continued, “We wanted to create the same experience our users have with our software anywhere, anytime. What our solutions offer is true end-to-end collaboration built on industry standards, all within a live planning environment.”Also featured in RPM’s dedicated demonstration centre at MINExpo is a live Short Interval Control demonstration in collaboration with Schneider Electric. RPM’s Short Interval Control demonstration is an example of best-in-class unification of technologies to fill a much needed gap in the mining industry.Baldwin concluded, “We wanted to users to experience the benefit of integrated systems and processes, in real time. Moving from a virtual reality Planning and Scheduling environment to assessing a mine’s financials in the palm of your hand is really quite powerful. XERAS Review mode, which will be launched at the show, provides the next level of visibility and transparency needed to make the right financial decisions, fast.”last_img
