While many operations worldwide are struggling to adapt their day to day work practices to cope with the changes brought on by coronavirus, others are adapting quickly and seamlessly.
Mining companies who had already made the move to Commit Works' frontline productivity solutions are finding themselves able to quickly adapt to social distancing and work-from-home constraints. With a system that enables teams to be on the same page/screen, their frontline work management system was able to adapt to the need for social distancing and for team members to work from home. In contrast, sites still using spreadsheet and whiteboard driven visual management systems are struggling to collaborate and coordinate work when they can't all stand around the board together.
As a result, the Commit Works' system of connected, collaborative frontline tools is helping to ensure that the current crisis is having minimal impact on their clients' capacity to sustain productivity.
Commit Works' clients use this frontline work management software to power continuous improvement through the entire work cycle for all people on site. The team's range of digital technology and specialist experience provides integrated solutions for improved frontline planning, execution, short interval control, dispatch and reporting, supporting the behaviours which drive significantly improved productivity.
As Paul Moynagh, CEO of Commit Works, says," The beauty of this system is that it connects the intentions of the management and staff onsite with the work that happens in the mine each shift, ensuring efficient compliance in execution. Of specific interest right now, the software can be set up, implemented and managed remotely in a matter of weeks. This ensures that crews can get a well thought out plan every shift, even when teams are struggling to collaborate and coordinate work using their current spreadsheet and whiteboard tools"
Moynagh continues, "We're currently running three rapid, remote implementations for mining and resource operations, large and small, successfully delivering the software, training and support online via videos, VC, phone and a learning management system."
"As we understand it there are a number of "MOS", "BOS" or "Wiring" projects that have stopped dead in their tracks with the coronavirus. We can very quickly pick up where these projects left off, implement an effective, connected, collaborative frontline work management system and get your team using it to run your mine or plant without setting foot on site."
Currently, maintaining continuity is key for all operations. Commit Works is keen to help company's seamlessly transition through these challenging times and sustain productivity.
