Innovation Name: Design for outcome
Awards: 2nd Most Innovative Agriculture, Mining & Utilities Company
Blasting commonly produces variable outcomes. As the first step of the rock breakage process, variable blast fragmentation adversely impacts downstream productivity and overall mining costs.
Orica’s Design for Outcome applies machine learning and automation to match rock characteristics to blast energy at high resolution to achieve targeted and consistent outcomes.. With blasting at 5% of operational cost and impacting as much as 85% of downstream costs, the solution realises significant productivity, efficiency and cost benefits
