PwC Australia’s bid to boost productivity in the global mining industry has been advanced through the acquisition of the GBI Mining Intelligence business (GBI), a world leader in analysing big data for the mining industry. The acquisition is PwC’s third expansion into mining productivity in recent months. It follows the acquisition of The Asset Partnership, a national provider of management services to the mining industry, and a recent agreement struck with Whittle Consulting for its Enterprise Optimisation service.
I established GBI in 1998. We helped pioneer the use of big data in the global mining industry by aggregating and measuring comprehensive data on mining equipment productivity and reliability worldwide. The database currently contains the equivalent of more than 12,000 years of data.
GBI's intellectual property allows miners to measure the annual output of any piece of equipment as well as annual dig rates and operating hours.
When you consider there are over 100 different truck types and models, 50 excavators and say 20 dragline models our method allows miners to get a clear picture of how each piece of individual equipment is performing and then compare it to its use in other mines globally.
The acquisition of GBI strengthens PwC's capacity to help mining companies achieve in setting discreet performance targets, which can underpin their plans for long-term, sustainable productivity improvement. In order to maintain its strength the resources industry needs to increase its focus on measures to boost productivity. Improved productivity is key to the industry’s future prosperity.
Joining forces with the world’s biggest professional services firm provides significant expansion opportunities. PwC’s network gives us a scale we didn’t have on our own and will allow us to take our technology to a new level in addressing mining productivity, arguably the most pressing issue facing the industry today.
