There are many articles, both on this page and across the internet detailing why mines need short interval control. The benefits are generally accepted and well understood, yet SIC has rarely been considered as a practical solution for quarries. Today, we’ll discuss why short interval control will be the future of quarries as well.
Short Interval Control Means Continuous Improvement:
With all the data that SIC enabled applications provide, it is more probable than ever that quarries can see better productivity with every passing day. The power of the ability to tweak decisions based on accurate data is one that can be underestimated.
Quarries waste too much time because of poor resource location management.
Real-Time Production Monitoring:
SIC enabled-apps integrate outputs from equipment and infrastructure to deliver insights. SIC intelligent analytics systems present workers with easy-to-understand data, empowering operations to optimize plans. Using machine learning, analytics systems understand your quarry. For example, they help automatically release a renewed schedule after disturbances in operations. These real-time capabilities, small as they may seem, add up to a big change in a quarry’s overall productivity.

Resource Location Management:
Quarries waste too much time because of poor resource location management. SIC enabled applications, like GroundHog SIC, provide a perfect solution. GPS tracking in real-time on a map of the quarry gives supervisors an easy understanding of recourse location at any given time. Not only does this provide supervisors with key knowledge, it ensures operators never have to hunt down a hauler at the start of a shift again.
