The Cat platform integrates Minestar data into a single interface

Caterpillar has launched its new Cat MineStar Reporting Platform for MineStar Solutions, a powerful reporting and analytics product that can consolidate information from MineStar products.

Every piece of mining equipment continuously generates critical operational and production data that is used by Cat MineStar products to help miners make better decisions.

Currently, MineStar Reporting supports information from the MineStar Fleet, Terrain, Health, and Command modules for transportation. Support for MineStar Edge is currently ongoing and all other products will be supported soon.

The easy-to-use reports and dashboards generated by MineStar Reporting are suitable for single or multiple mine sites and can work effectively with other non-MineStar sources.

It also provides a single data layer for presentation and analysis, regardless of MineStar version. A comprehensive set of reports and dashboards comes standard with system installation.

Data collected from MineStar and other vendor technologies is unified by the new MineStar Reporting into a comprehensive database that can be easily and securely accessed through a web browser.

The flexible system allows users to create customized reports, so each person has the right information, while automated email reports within the system ensure that data is received at the right time.

Providing more graphical content to users, MineStar Reporting expands the scope of reporting capabilities at the mine. The solution offers upgrades to connect to other mining data sources for more comprehensive analysis and aggregate summarization, including spatial intelligence, process plant data, and reconciliations. It keeps track of products with genesis tracing, inventory management and reconciliations.

Key reports and dashboards included with the new reporting platform allow users to quickly view and analyze mine site data.

Standard production reports include management and movement summaries, benches operated, cycle details, truck production, and movement and grade summary.

Equipment performance, time stats and delay overview, activity schedule, fleet timeline and event details are covered in the time report. Users can quickly see drill accuracy, hole list and drill information using the standard drill report. A wide variety of maintenance reports are included with an extensive set using machine condition data.

Growing with the use of mine site automation, MineStar Reporting is scalable and future proof. Using Connected Mine technology in partnership with Information Alignment, it simplifies the reporting of currently collected data while leaving room for future solutions when the mine is ready to adopt new technologies. With all data housed in a single, solution-independent location, valuable historical data is secure when updating or changing technology systems.
