Business development director
Business Development Director of VIST Group, Ph.D., defended his thesis at the Institute of Problems of Comprehensive Development of the Earth's under the guidance of Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Trubetskoi Kliment Nikolaevich.
In 2008 he graduated with honors from the Moscow Aviation Institute (Technical University) with the assignment of an engineer in the specialty of telecommunications.
In 2009, he graduated a second higher education in the same institute as an engineer-economist in the specialty of anti-crisis management of the enterprise.
In 2012 he graduated from the full-time postgraduate course of the Moscow Aviation Institute of the Faculty of Radio Electronics.
In 2014, he studied in INSEAD at the Advanced Industrial Marketing Strategy program.
Dmitriy has been working in the field of automation of mining since 2009. Before that, he worked in telecommunications at various positions and was engaged in IT projects and software development in companies: AKADO-Stolitsa (Moscow), Ericsson (Backnang, Germany).
He is the author of theoretical and experimental research in the field of changing parameters of open pits using autonomous dump trucks. Dmitry is a regular participant of Russian and international conferences in the field of automation of mining operations and using cutting-edge technologies in process industries, applications of predictive analytics and principles of digital transformation of the mining industry.
Key challenges of digital transformation in the mining industry in Russia and worldwide
Issue: Low efficient of haulage, huge expenses for tires, inefficient amount of dump trucks and drilling process. Solution: Digital transformation in mining industry is the way of efficient and safety process management from drilling and blasting up to mineral processing. Mine Fleet Management System, high precision drills guidance, ore quality management, health and safety management and payload optimization are the current level of using IT solutions in а modern mine. The next step of digitalization is including solutions, based on artificial intelligent and different application with it, such as predictive analytics for tires management, fuel consumption, predictive maintenance, autonomous dump trucks and teleoperated mining equipment. Average return of investment from 6 to 12 months. Increase a production and drilling volumes by 5-25% using a same mining fleet. Decrease OPEX by 3-7% (fuel, tires, spares and maintenance). Reduced LTIFR by 2,5 times. Mining industry is the cutting edge of using industry 4.0 technologies and approaches.
