Mining in Australia has seen an incredible speed of development. Mining companies across the globe are adopting Lean practices to produce the best business outcomes. ROI on Lean Mining Projects can easily exceed 5000% or more. Generally, business and operational systems will become more productive as they mature even in mature systems, if best-practice Lean Mining systems are not maintained there will always be large opportunities for improvement through efficiency, productivity and cost savings.
Vative’s Lean Mining approach provides your business with the foundation it needs for a culture of continuous improvement to ensure you’re receiving optimal ROI.
How Vative works in Mining
Vative is currently working with large mining organisations, including the likes of BHP Billiton and international organisations that have a presence in Australia.
At Vative we understand in a high cost country, the ability to identify and eliminate wasted labour time can deliver enormous savings – quickly. Implementing Lean Mining improves labour utilisation through workplace organisation, work definition and standardisation, quick changeovers, reduced breakdowns, reduced quality defects (meaning less rework), cross training and labour balancing.
There is a common trait that is shared by leading mining companies – they differentiate themselves from their competition via their culture of excellence and commitment towards continuous improvement. Accepting problems just as “the way things are done here”, and “it’s not my fault” or “it’s management’s fault” are prime examples of a negative attitude that can become commonplace within a work culture unless they’re properly addressed. Vative recognises that a culture of continuous improvement is the key measurement of performance outcomes and our services ensure that this is our primary focus throughout all our programs.

Mining production offers enormous opportunities to utilise Six Sigma skills for statistical control. If inputs to a process can be monitored, problems and downtime can be avoided. Vative’s Lean Mining program instils a culture of continuous improvement to all levels of your business to streamline processes, reduce costs, and improve efficiencies.
Vative identifies, coordinates and implements projects as required, providing Lean Mining to allow your business to eliminate restrictions and thrive for future growth and better ROI.
