Productivity: How to Minimize Shift Change Interruptions

The time that mine sites spend on shift change can have a significant impact on their overall productivity. Fortunately, it’s an area that offers opportunities for improvement through the implementation of best practices and the use of technologies like Cat MineStar™ Fleet, Terrain and Command. In this video, we use first and last hour tons to measure shift change performance, and illustrate how one mine used Fleet to move more material by reducing the time spent on shift changes. The video also discusses how Terrain can help sites track and manage shift change delays, and how Command eliminates the need for shift change by enabling fully autonomous haulage. Finally, we discuss best practices for reducing shift change time.
