GMG produces database of mining interoperability initiatives

Press Release 13 Apr 2021 - 22:16 SAST

Information from GMG

The Global Mining Guidelines Group (GMG) has developed a “landscape of interoperability activities in the mining industry” database. This initial iteration covers organisations with ongoing or completed interoperability initiatives, solutions, tools, and projects.

One of the challenges with interoperability in mining is that it is difficult to understand what is out there to help advance the industry. This landscape aims to increase the industry’s visibility of what different organisations are doing on interoperability in order to enable collaboration among organisations and accelerate the progress of ongoing efforts.

This landscape is a live database based on input received by GMG and is not exhaustive. The outreach, feedback, and information gathering process will be ongoing, and GMG encourages the community to identify any missing pieces to the landscape, if there are any relationships between projects that should be mentioned or to highlight any particularly useful work by filling out the form on the webpage.

GMG is a network of like-minded companies driving change in the mining industry by developing multi-disciplinary guidelines and strategies to manage risk, enhance performance, design solutions, and inform planning and decision making. GMG facilitates collaboration among multi-stakeholder working groups who address topics such as interoperability, data access and usage, artificial intelligence and autonomous equipment.
