Molycop brings together technology, equipment, systems and processes within the mineral processing sector with our Value Invention Process (VIP) Platform. It’s the latest in digital technology that can be used to drive economic value, increase efficiency, lower operational costs and improve safety.
VIP Platform incorporates VIP Historian software that enables efficient storage and analyses of data, and VIP Vision, a time-series analytics platform that can integrate with any existing data source (including VIP Historian). Also included is VIP Insights, which enables enterprise-wide data integration, analysis and reporting.
Benefits of VIP Platform
VIP Platform integrates people and processes across the value chain. Among its advantages:
- Remote access to expertise – VIP Platform allows for remote access to real-time standardised data obtained from the site. It also allows for our clients to share their information with various experts from around the world to promote remote consulting opportunities within the organisation.
- Improved decision-making – VIP Platform collects data from multiple sources allowing for the seamless integration of technology, equipment, systems and processes across the value chain.
- A collaborative environment – VIP Platform promotes collaboration by allowing for multidirectional flow of standardised information from a centralised location to and from the various stakeholders. The result is a total value add to the operation that goes far beyond that of the sum of the value added by each of the stakeholders had they operated individually.
- Continuity in knowledge – VIP Platform is a repository of information, capturing events and changes that occurred, thereby promoting continuity in the knowledge and wisdom obtained from past experiences.
Tailored to your needs
Molycop encourages all stakeholders (mining companies, consultants and suppliers) to apply a systematic data-driven and multi-disciplinary approach to facilitate the development of effective and sustainable solutions with expert domain knowledge.
- Data – The first step is to obtain quality of data that will provide the necessary information required to make informed decisions around the specifically identified problem.
- Information – The data is relayed and stored in a database that will enable domain experts to carry out the necessary data analytics and modelling to convert the raw data into information.
- Control and optimisation – The information is applied to the specific problem in an effective manner using remote expert consulting, advanced data analytics (calculations and statistics, as well as AI and machine learning) and/or expert control systems.
- Knowledge and wisdom – The efficiency of the process is evaluated by applying knowledge and wisdom from internal management and expert consultants (if necessary) and constraints are identified.
- Action – The constraints are critically evaluated and recommendations made to management on the changes that need to be implemented in order to unlock the full potential of the system.
- Evaluate – The real return-on-investment be determined for the system.
