Setting ICT Projects up for Success

The practical application of a consolidated “solution architecture process” has become one of the biggest success stories for delivering successful digital mining projects.
The rapid increase of solutions and technologies in the market, created a next level of complexity for mine owners.

Various aspects that are illustrated in the figure below needs to be considered.

Vision Alignment

• Objectives
• Purpose
• Description
• High Level Value
• Alignment


Requirements Definition

• Business Requirements
• Functional Requirements
• Battery Limits
• Process Flow
• Integration with other Solutions
• Data Requirements
• ICT Requirements
• Automation Levels
• Reporting
• High level Risks

Solution Designs

• Technology Options
• Architecture/Design
• Cost Estimate (CAPEX & OPEX)
• Benefits Care
• Maintenance and Support
• Project Methology (Agile)
• Labour Plan

Solution Selection

• Procurement
• Solutions Ranking (Benefits Case)
• Implementation Roadmap (Phases)

“Vision alignment”

Is essential to initiate your design.
The Requirements definition phase is arguably the most important phase before solution design can commence.
A solid business case with associated risks must be developed for each solution
