Who need to reliably log and report all production activities and consumables used and log all potential  sources of production losses so supervisors can make appropriate in-shift and cross-shift decisions.

Automatically track production KPIs in real-time.

Track material and consumables at all times

Mines using GroundHog can easily and accurately track all broken ground inventory until it gets to the mill. Material tracking and tracing is very important to meet rolling-hour blend plans at mills. 


Mines also use GroundHog to keep track of all consumables used at site — from fuel, hydraulic fluids and drill bits to explosives so mine managers can get accurate information on cost per ton mined – for both AISC and C1 cash cost computations. Consumable consumption rates can be integrated with the Supply Chain Management system such as SAP to streamline and optimize inventory management and cost controls.
