/ 5.1 Relevant Options – New VI React Controls /
The Work Packages in this section focus on the successful implementation of new VI intervention controls (EMESRT Levels 8–9). This requires the integration of all VI Control Levels for a ‘whole of system’ improvement.
Identify relevant company vehicle interaction requirements for new technology controls (EMESRT Level 8 and 9) based on operation type: e.g. underground coal mining, underground hard rock mining, open cut mining, refinery etc.
Confirm site infrastructure requirements for each technology option.
Prepare a site functional, performance and technology specification and review it against technology performance summaries of preferred PDS suppliers
Select the best fit from preferred PDS technology suppliers and request that they complete a summary of their product performance against site functional and performance requirements
If other technology options are considered ensure that they meet minimum set requirements based on ACARP PDS validation framework (draft ISO standard)
Summarise capability, installation and maintenance costs, upgrade potential, data management and fit with future mine digitisation plans and other relevant information for each option
Compare site and company requirements, identify any difference e.g. additional site-specific requirements and/or restrictions e.g. requirement for machine swing interlocks and orebody precludes use of magnetic field PDS etc.
