Trimble MMRS is a mine performance reporting system that integrates production data from disparate sources into one trusted, central source of information used throughout operations and business offices.


Use One Trusted Source of Production Data

Eliminate data silos by integrating production data into a central data management and reporting system. MMRS applies processes, software and a data hub to:

  • Validate data from disparate sources
  • Integrate the data
  • Transform data into useable information
  • Expose data for correlation and analysis

Detect, Analyze and React Faster to Variance from Plan

Automated monitoring and reporting of actual vs. plan helps mines to identify, analyze and react faster to exceptions:

  • Reduce reporting time by replacing manual report roll-up with automated reporting of validated and trusted data
  • Shorten reaction times with rapid modeling, options analysis, cost scenarios, and predictive analysis
  • Unlock data to interrogation, correlation and analysis to make incremental productivity gains

Corporate Dashboards for Enterprise Use

Gain clarity and insight into performance, trends and exceptions across business units by using corporate dashboards:

  • View KPI variance scorecards for on track/off track status across multiple remote sites
  • Benchmark performance across business units
  • Drill down for direct access to detailed production data

Agnostic to Source Information System

Trimble MMRS is agnostic to information source, harvesting data from Trimble and third-party applications so mines can use their existing operational systems to contribute to the integrated solution.


Proven Worldwide

More than 50 successful implementations worldwide have integrated data from Trimble and third-party remote sensors, fleet management and mine monitoring systems, plant control systems and ERPs. Clients include Rio Tinto, AngloGold Ashanti, Anglo American, Barrick Gold, Kinross, KGHM and Cloud Peak Energy.
