The Asset Based PI Example Kits are designed to help you learn how to apply asset- based PI to common, industry-specific business objectives. 


In this example kit, multiple aspects of a mineral processing facility, including toll ore delivery, grinding and recovery circuits, are monitored. Safety and environmental targets are tracked, downtime and production slowdowns are captured, and metrics such as reagent cost, metal recovery, and overall equipment effectiveness are calculated and “rolled up” for a high-level view. For more details on this kit, see the video on PI Square: Introduction to the Asset Based PI Example Kit for Mineral Processing.
