Mining is notoriously driven by volume targets, which in the Lean Operating System, can present ongoing challenges (due to the waste of over-production).

From pit to port, from drill to blast, GENEO has helped mining organisations to transform their processes and empower people to own the required change.

Our experience in Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Supply and Human Resources has helped organisations like yours to adapt to a lean environment.
