Dassault Systèmes has announced the launch of “Perfect Order”, an industry solution experience for natural resources that helps mining companies improve efficiency and profitability.

“Perfect Order” offers digital end-to-end supply chain management capabilities for more visibility, control and predictability across operations.

As mining companies strive to deliver commodity shipments to customers that are on time and meet quality specifications, an efficient and cost-effective supply chain is critical. However, lower commodity prices, more variable demand, and lower grade deposits are increasing supply chain complexity, making it harder for mining companies to meet customer contract requirements.

Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and leveraging Quintiq supply chain planning and optimisation capabilities, Dassault Systèmes’ “Perfect Order” industry solution experience offers mining companies a holistic view of what’s occurring throughout the supply chain, from infrastructure constraints and bottlenecks, to labour shortages or the financial impact of an operational change. In a digital environment, companies can plan across supply chain functions to ensure they meet forecast demand, visualise all activities in their supply networks and optimise the flow of goods, resulting in greater predictability for their business.

“Mining companies are looking to experience the digital transformation that has brought operational stability, enterprise agility and improved business performance to other industries,” said Marni Rabassó, Vice President Natural Resources Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “Dassault Systèmes offers a diverse set of solutions to the mining industry that stems from decades of technological expertise. With ‘Perfect Order,’ mining companies will uncover hidden value in increased efficiency of the supply chain, which also improves the customers’ delivery experience.”

Specifically, the “Perfect Order” industry solution experience provides:

  • A single source of truth that connects all planning decisions, from mine to port.
  • Improved shipment forecasting and logistics planning integrating market demand forecasts, availability of commodities at mine sites, and the capacity of transport networks as well as predictive intelligence that leverages historical data and causal factors such as price and GDP.
  • Real-time key performance indicators on the impact of planning decisions that allow for rapid adjustments to be made to keep deliveries, specifications and budget on track.
  • Ability to match supply and demand to resource capacity, maximising fulfilment of contracts and resulting in fewer penalties and an improved customer experience.

“Perfect Order” will be presented at the Dassault Systèmes booth at MINExpo 2016, September 26-28 (booth 2453).
