Applying Digital Technologies to Mining
A collaboration between Dassault Systèmes and BHP promises to generate insights into the potential for geoscience and resource engineering of technologies developed in other industries.
By pooling their experience and resources, the partners aim to establish what they describe as “a new level of understanding of resource and operational potential, underpinned by both companies’ commitment to safety and sustainability”.
Announcing the initiative, Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman and CEO of Dassault Systèmes, said:
“BHP and Dassault Systèmes share the same vision and ambition for the mining of the 21st century.
“By digitalizing all operations from planning to exploitation, our 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the full ‘digital twin experience’ of the end to end processes; a unique collaborative innovation environment for holistic optimization.
“This transformational approach provides market agility, improved predictability, sustainable mining innovation, and significant cost reduction all along the life cycle; a proven track record that has transformed the manufacturing industry to date.”
