Labour productivity in the mining industry dropped 20% in comparison with 2000, in Chile and internationally, as stated by the Chilean Copper Commission (Cochilco) in 2014. This is an important concern for the mining industries that, with the purpose of solving this situation, started to search for a solution for the processes, new technologies, and people.

With the purpose of solving productivity problems associated with the employee’s operational behavior, INDIMIN developed a solution seeking to broaden the productive capacity of the loading and transportation equipment operators, with digital technologies that capture, analyze and deliver relevant information to the employees and their shift managers. For this purpose, they designed and built Smart Mining Coach, a digital personal trainer to guide and improve the operation of the mobile mining equipment to contribute to the productive rise of the operations.
