Digital transformation is driven by the ability to better connect all aspects of operations to the laboratory – devices, consumables, workflows, data, and people – to increase productivity. To take advantage of these recent advancements and those yet to come, mining organizations need to connect the laboratory and make data accessible to those who need it.
Mining organizations can do more with Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) than just address efficiencies in the laboratory workflow and quality control as a standalone repository. This webinar will discuss how mining organizations are using LIMS software as part of a digital ecosystem to deliver value to process control and business operations.
