METALLURGICAL ACCOUNTING


Increased corporate governance and more stringent regulatory requirements have created a need for many mines to improve metallurgical accounting processes and practices. Smart organisations are moving away from non-transparent, non-auditable excel spreadsheets or custom-built solutions as they move towards compliance to the AMIRA P754 code. Optimum's Metallurgical Accounting solution provides a unique integrated solution for replacing your unsecured excel driven or custom-built metallurgical accounting system with a digital compliant solution.  Our solution presents a cost-effective approach that decreases risk, improves security, accuracy and provides traceability all at a fraction of the costs of what you would expect to pay.

How Does METALLURGICAL ACCOUNTING work?



The Metallurgical Accounting solution is configured to match your existing metallurgical processes at site and absorb your existing excel spreadsheet. Integration and connection are established to your source systems such as historians, SCADA, PLC’s, production managers etc. Data is set up to automatically flow with validation rules and reprocessing capability. User permissions are established, and audit logs created for change tracking. The solution creates transparency in calculations, has adjustable factors and can manage the most advanced metallurgical functions across any metal operation with compliance capability to the AMIRA P754 Code. Important information is distributed via automatic reports and displayed on dashboards.
