    Anyone working on a six sigma projects in copper mining companies?
    I am interested in obtaining some information on benefit calculation for some specific initiatives, such as decreasing or reducing a number of failures in ore crushers conveyors; improving availability/utilization/performance of mining equipment, etc
    Thanks so much in advance

    Hi,
    In terms of calculating a benefit for the crusher circuit, I would suspect that it all relates back to how the crushers throughput is improved. eg. tonnes per day. Higher the availability or higher the utilisation then a corresponding increase in throughput or additional tonnes for the site will be achieved.
    If you can equate what an hour of lost production is equal to then for each crusher failure then a dollar value can be assigned.
    email me if you require any additional info.
    regards

    There was an article in the ISS magazine a few months ago about Lonmin Mining is SA deploying SS – you may want to get a copy of that.

    Francisco,
    I have worked on mining deployments for the last five years. One of those deployments was with BHP’s Base Metals so we worked the Escondida copper mine in Chile. I won’t provide you with any specifc information that belongs to my clients but I will help you sort out some of your issues if you would like.
    We are also doing the Lonmin deployment referenced in and earlier post.
    My email address is [email protected]
    Regards

    Thank you for reliable answer :)
    150 staff over 500 emplloyee. How much black belt should be or is there any ratio.
    is there any audit plan or method, which kind of company structure can we choose or which model is closed to engage deployment.
