Rising input costs and global pressure on commodity prices are making it more and more challenging for the mining industry to remain competitive. Although mining companies recognise this and are striving to become more efficient and effective, many interventions fail to deliver significant change - either never taking hold at all or quickly losing impetus. True transformation occurs when change endures and produces long-term improvements - this usually only happens when operations have the know-how and resources to properly understand, analyse and plan improvement initiatives that are targeted and address key issues across the value chain.
The Wits Enterprise, Wits University, is presenting a five-day University accredited course (MECN 7060) entitled “Operations management for mining systems.” This course will run from the 04 June – 08 June 2018.
This course considers industrial engineering techniques from a systems perspective, providing context, a methodology for improvement and practical tools for solving problems and improving performance in mining operations.
- Accredited postgraduate course - the University regards this course as NQF level 9 and has been accredited by ECSA for CPD purposes as follows: five-day attendance = 4 points,
five-day attendance and satisfactory completion of assignment and examination = 6 points. This is a formal course (MECN 7060) in the postgraduate programme of the School of Mechanical, Industrial and Aeronautical Engineering
- Official Wits University certificate
- Rich, learning experience within a group of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and with a wealth of experience – often a fresh perspective can go a long way towards solving a problem
This extremely popular course will be presented by the University’s academic staff, Teresa Hattingh and experienced industry specialist.
