Usually, big natural resources companies will focus on maintenance and operation to ensure all the natural resources can be processed in large quantity of product. To make it happen, they spend a lot of money to implement an innovation in their maintenance and operation. The equipment is custom-build depends on scale and remote operation of the industry, so there are no same between two processing plants. It will cause high cost in maintaining and operating this equipment, also need a big scale of workforce that human can not make it. That is why most companies focus on equipment automation to reduce worker in this site, reduce costs and improve safety. Even though this equipment automation brings good effect, it is still heavy and big. Does it need to be?
They said that large yellow truck, bigger will give more efficient because fewer people needed to drive them on mine sites. The question is, is there possibility that smaller size can be more efficient? What if we use standard and commercial size of truck? Because smaller commercial truck could be faster and more efficient. If using large truck, the large tires will become overheat and will limit the truck speed. A small commercial truck with larger fleet will become faster and more economical than large truck that built specifically for the industry. Other than that, innovation also has been used for mining process like cutting edge technology and others. It will make the operation can be done faster, increase efficiency of energy, more flexible operation, reduce labour costs with remote operations and increase reliability and also availability. Even though this innovation brings many changes and contribution in our natural resources industries, there is still rises in cost of operation and maintenance in last few years.
