This year marked the inaugural Regional Users Workshop in South Africa, which was held in Johannesburg on October 10-11th. The Workshop in Africa enjoyed strong attendance with broad representation from coal, gold, mineral sands and manganese resources. A full range of mining operations were represented, including open cast and underground mining, separation plants, smelters and mobile fleets.
As in previous years, the conferences in APAC and the Americas were preceded by Oniqua Advisory Board meetings, where specially-elected customer representatives gather with Oniqua executives for high-level planning meetings and discussions.
All three of this year’s Workshops shared the unifying theme, “Delivering Value Through MRO Analytics”, and hosted presentations and discussions centering around four key areas:
• Problem solving and exchanging ideas around common MRO business challenges
• Case studies on the use of Oniqua Analytics Solution (OAS)
• Work-shopping the use of OAS - tips and tricks for solving topical issues and challenges
• Planned features and functionality in upcoming versions of OAS
Client case studies proved to be a common highlight of this year’s workshops, which included presentations from Rio Tinto, Xstrata Copper Queensland, Goldfields Australia, Freeport McMoRan, ConocoPhillips and Newmont Mining.
Oniqua representatives also shared information on market trends, company activities and product updates, while ideas for enhancing the power of OAS and how it can be used to engage more stakeholders across the business to deliver greater asset performance were generated and discussed by Oniqua and attendees in highly interactive sessions.
