who will deliver a presentation on:

KPI Driver Tree

 

Abstract: Most junior mining companies struggle to get their metrics in place facing the following issues:

a) an structured data capturing system that does not provide critical information for data analytics;

b) lack of drill-down of Balance Score Card Metrics to the shop floor;

c) lack of leadership at the front-line level as the front line managers do not focus on cost and do not understand the impact of the operational efficiencies; and

d) prioritization of capturing metrics is often absent.

While Big Data and AI would be “fancy” methods to be adopted by the large mining companies, junior mining companies could perform well merely by establishing a KPI Tree, which:

a) drills-down the profitability of the company into the Lowest Common Denominators or KPIs;

b) forces the company to undertake a contribution analysis for its operation;

c) aligns the company’s IT infrastructure to capture data that is most relevant for decision making at each level;

d) allows the users to toggle the KPIs and determine the impact of each change in them;

e) forms an excellent tool for cost control and increases efficiency in Budgeting and preparation of business plan;

g) empowers front-line managers to execute cost control initiatives having the sight of which the impact is, and

h) has always been a low cost highly effective tool in all Malcolm Baldridge Awardees.

Lastly, the KPI Tree is easy to develop, as it is Excel-based.
