Avoiding downtime & production slowdowns in Mining & Metallurgy

In mining & metallurgy, downtime & production slowdowns are significant events; how to avoid them

Discover how the OSIsoft PI System and RtDUET can drive productivity by reducing the occurrence of these events

Downtime and slowdown in mining and metallurgical operations are significant events. They result in tons of materials not moving, heavy machinery becoming idle, supply chains disruption, and expensive repairs.

Understanding and acting on the root causes of downtime and slowdown begins with measuring their occurrences, all of them, systematically tracking the location and the reasons and correlating this data with the operational data in the OSIsoft PI System to create a path of continuous improvement.

This webinar is about the stories of mining and metallurgical companies like Barrick Gold, Nutrien, Rio Tinto who are using RtDUET for downtime monitoring, tracking and analysis and computing essential and actionable OEE KPI’s.

RtDUET is a bolt-on application for the OSIsoft PI System which uses Asset Analytics, Asset Framework (AF) and Event Frames (EF) to capture down time and slowdown events and compute the relevant analytics.


By attending this webinar, you will discover how:

  • RtDUET KPI Toolbox streamlines the process of creating the asset performance KPI’s
  • RtDUET users easily and reliably track downtime and slowdown events and log reason codes and other important information critical to the root cause analysis
  • RtDUET KPI engine and reporting services simplify and streamline reporting and benchmarking OEE data across the enterprise


By adopting RtDUET, you will get the following benefits:

  • Maximize availability, productivity and reliability of machinery, equipment and production units
  • Identify root causes of failure more easily and more rapidly
  • Streamline the data collection process to ensure that virtually all events, small and big, are tracked. This will enable early detection preventing costly down time and slow downs
  • Support the implementation of CBM and RCM initiatives for asset optimisation by providing the baseline measurements required to measure improvements

RtDUET installs rapidly following a proven methodology which incorporates a workshop with the stakeholders to ensure it is well integrated with your processes.

Take control of downtime and production slowdowns with RtDUET to increase productivity in your mining and metallurgical operations.
