- At the core of digital transformation is the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)
- The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) has been defined as technological developments that blur the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres.
- It integrates cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things, big data and cloud computing, robotics, artificial intelligence -based systems, AR &VR and additive manufacturing.
- Industry 4.0 promises to transform industries worldwide, with digital processes at the forefront of that change.
- Compared to previous industrial revolutions, this one is evolving at an exponential rather than a linear pace, with potentially significant impacts on work, services, education and leisure – Most Profound Change for past 2,000 years.
- By connecting machines, people and systems, Industry 4.0 promises to create intelligent networks across the manufacturing value chain that ultimately make operations fully predictable.
- By monitoring and measuring the performance of all equipment, future factories will generate the data that Operators need to iterate and improve processes, maximize production, and further improve efficiency.
- Binmak Tsoelepele Digital Twins are at the forefront of heling companies achieve this digital transformation.
- Binmak Tsoelopele creates industry leading digital twins using Geographic Information System (GIS) which is a computer software package that links information about spatial objects and the data related to that object. GIS is considered as a powerful tool for storing and retrieving, transforming and displaying spatial data from real world for a particular set of purposes. For application in mining, GIS packages normally fall under ‘toolbox’ classification of software.
- ORGANIZATION REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS
- This process involves identifying the needs of the organization and coming up with solutions to fill the gaps that are currently present. The most important and the first step in the implementation of a GIS is to conduct a thorough “Requirements Analysis”.
- The Requirements Analysis document is the working blueprint for an organization’s geographical information management system.
- The steps outlined below can be carried out to achieve a fully functional system.
Asset Information Model (AIM)
The Binmak Tsoelopele Asset Information Model integrates data from multiple information sources and systems into trusted actionable information, delivering a Digital Twin of up-to-date information that accurately describes the current condition of the physical asset, rather than how it was initially designed. It enables asset managers to make better decisions based on current reality, and businesses to improve operational performance and safety with simultaneous risk reduction.
