Blast KPI Control System O-Pitblast Analytics

Atualizado: 27 de Nov de 2020

One of the greatest, and old, truth in the mining world is the one present on Wipware’s slogan:


In fact, this is so real that in the majority of the reputable mines there’s a specific department for Continuous Improvements which is responsible to analyze all the KPI’s gathering process. This department has the responsibility to identify, in each mine sector – from housekeeping up to top decision positions – ways to improve the entire mining chain.


To explain Wipware’s slogan, fragmentation is the fingerprint on a crime scene performed by a blast engineer, a geologist, a mine planner, a blaster, a foreman, a driller, a drilling supervisor, …


But usually, geology is chosen as the guilty one. Shame!


This happens because gather information right after the drilling until the loading and haulage is a nightmare.


You know… the rush of blast process, the client that wants a fast job, the safety, the rain, the sun, the dust, the unpredictive events.. everything serves as an excuse.


Well, O-Pitblast understands all of that and also understand that something needed to be changed! For it was launched the FIRST Blasting Process KPI Control System and it is called: O-Pitblast Analytics

O-Pitblast Analytics concentrates all the information from blast plans and real data from the field. It is linked with O-Pitblast App (iOS/Android) that allows the collection of field data such as:

  • Kg’s/hole

  • Hole’s length

  • Kg’s loaded

  • Load issues

  • Stemming length

  • Safety alerts

  • Watered holes

  • Re-drills

In O-Pitblast Analytics you can match different types of KPI’s, control if you’re operation if following the plan or not – and if not, why that is happening.

If you think this is amazing just watch the following video and you’ll understand much better all the ideas behind this system.
