More often than not we hear that mine sites want a digital solution for their operation but don’t trust or believe their data. It’s often regarded as poor quality or its just plain wrong. Coincidentally it’s also a commong thought that bad data makes bad prediction models.
If you have experience this before then you are not alone.
Here is some helpful advice from PETRA Technical Director Dr Zeljka Pokracic:
Operating data is almost never considered accurate, reliable or complete.
PETRA has built a solution which is already being used to automate processes and provide operator decision support.
There are purpose built automated mathematical algorithms deployed to tackle bad data issues in near real-time!
These digital applications run on below-par operating data to produce valid predictions and recommendations.
- Data Cleaning
- Calibration and Auto-Correction
- Anomaly Detection
- Input Variable Change Out
