Extract more availability. Improve productivity and safety.

Reclaim profitability.

Mining operations performance is underpinned by throughput, cost per tonne, and safety. One of the biggest controllable variables in delivering performance is equipment availability and capacity. The challenge is to determine and deliver the best balance of risk, cost and performance from all assets.


Are you experiencing any of these problems?

  • Escalating or unpredictable cost per tonne
  • Poor crushing, processing or mobile equipment reliability
  • Mobile fleet high maintenance costs or low availability
  • Unexpected major conveying outages
  • Low productivity

From system availability optimization, through to shutdown intervals assessment and strategy review and development, our solution-based approach will help you overcome your challenges and ensure your reliability improvement initiatives to be aligned, and delivering against, business performance goals.

How ARMS Reliability Helps

Build Reliability into Design

RAMS studies conducted in the early phases of the Front-end Engineering Design (FEED) process enables you to verify design decisions, including redundancy levels and equipment type selection, identify critical reliability issues, and assess the impact of maintenance outages on production availability and capacity.

Improve Performance

Ensure optimal whole of life asset strategies are deployed to all your assets, identify bottlenecks, assess shutdown intervals and establish how to extend them.

Forecast expected levels of system availability and production levels, and cost / resource requirements to maintain equipment, as well as high risk areas and items.

Manage Risk

Identify areas of risk proactively by developing insight into the disparity between what’s getting executed and approved asset strategies. Assess risk of high severity, low likelihood events and determine appropriate mitigation strategies.

Reduce Costs

Determine asset strategies yielding the best balance of risk, cost and performance to ensure delivery of corporate objectives at minimal costs. Implement an ongoing cost, risk and performance management process.

Increase Productivity

Use a structured mining equipment knowledge base and corporate endorsed master data standards to ensure similar equipment and maintenance activities are managed from one source to eliminate duplication, confusion, and inconsistent performance.

Over the course of the project, ARMS Reliability supplied professional reliability engineers that worked directly with both the project team and the operations team; and used a traditional RCM approach to deliver the required asset strategy.

Due to the nature of a greenfield project - and in some cases limited amounts of data - they were also able to identify opportunities to reduce analysis time by using a streamlined RCM process to deliver the strategies quickly while maintaining a high level of reliability.
