Process Plant Optimisation

(1 Day Training Course)

Process Plant Optimisation


Know-how for process plant optimisation and improvements.


Basic knowledge, tools and techniques needed to drive an optimisation culture and different optimisation processes currently conducted in industry are explored. Benchmarking of process plant is highlighted and strategies to start an optimisation process assessed. Suitable for mining personnel, project managers, senior mine and processing plant operating staff, engineers and researchers.

Key Learning Outcomes:

There are many benefits of attending this course. Throughout the course, participants will improve their knowledge in the following areas:

  • Understand the need for process improvement and ways to maximise production and minimise costs
  • Benchmark plant performance with best practice and set standards
  • Provide strategies and methods to develop a workable action plant to optimise a mineral processing plant
  • Identify cost savings involved and increases in revenue
  • Develop proposals with budgets, schedules and the resources required
  • Convince management of the need to optimise the process
  • Monitor and assess the changes
