Increase Safety and Reduce Environmental Hazards
Mining is often characterized by harsh surroundings and difficult operating conditions. Such conditions require a focus on safety and health as well as continuous monitoring of environmental issues. MDT AutoSave is part of a best practice change management and audit infrastructure required to maintain a high standard of safety in mining operations.
Nearly all of the underground and above ground operations of a mine are controlled by a vast array of PLC and SCADA systems and even some DCS systems. Such operations often call for regular program code changes to be made due to changing production issues. MDT AutoSave ensures proper rollback/recovery data exists by tracking changes in these PLC and SCADA programs while providing notification of changes.
