INFORMATICS PLATFORM AS A TOOL SUPPORTING RESEARCH REGARDING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MINING MACHINES’ WORK
AbstractOne of the factors which highly affects the economic effectiveness of production enterprises is the level of the use of technical means. This factor is also significant for mining companies extracting coal. The optimal use of mining machines can impact the future of these companies. The paper presents the authors’ solution which is an informatics platform supporting an analysis of the mining machines’ effectiveness. It uses a data warehouse to archive, synchronize and analytically process the data obtained from the studied machines. The article shows an example of applying an informatics platform to investigate the effectiveness of the longwall shearer’s work. The analysis was based on the data obtained from the industrial automation system. Afterwards, the shearer’s availability and performance, and quality of the product, which is coal, were determined. The developed tool should find wide practical application in production companies across different kinds of industries.
