Ash is an expert in whole-of-business transformation and optimisation with the modular Pulse Mining ERP system and agnostic Pulse Analytics.
A thought-leader in the application of agile collaborative methodologies in business solutions development and implementation, working closely with business optimisation specialists and managers on the client side to achieve their objectives and exceed expectations, Ash also speaks about the impact of BI on team performance and organisational culture, and the potential for business when integrated real-time performance visualisations are made available throughout the organisation.
At IMARC 2018, Ash co-presented the case study ‘The Digital Mine Today Through Agile Collaboration’ with Neil Grimes, Project Director, Business Transition, of the A$2.9 billion Kestrel coal mine in Queensland. At Kestrel in 2018, throughout rolling operations, Pulse Mining ERP and Pulse Analytics were successfully implemented in less than 4 months, including 10 years of Rio Tinto history ex-SAP. This achievement set a new world benchmark for full-business system implementation efficiency.
Pulse Mining ERP is the complete mine management system, with new mobility, equipment tracking, and operational resources planning capabilities being launched at IMARC 2019. Pulse Analytics is the data-agnostic real-time business analytics suite used in mining and other industries released at IMARC 2018. A video case study of production analytics in underground mining with integrated machine data featured Pulse Analytics in action at Centennial Coal, where key productivity metrics are displayed on big TV screens in common areas to promote frontline gains through competitive team dynamics.
For more than 30 years, Pulse has been wholly focused on developing business solutions for the mining industry. Pulse systems are used for managing all mining methods and resources types, in Australia and other countries. Solutions can be used on their own or as a complete, fully-integrated system. A long-standing director of Pulse, Ashley Bosworth, BEng(Mech), became managing director and CEO in early 2019. There are four other directors and more than 50 employees. Pulse is headquartered in the major mining region of Hunter Valley NSW, Australia, near Newcastle, the world’s largest coal export port.
Platinum sponsors of IMARC 2019, Pulse is a participating member of Austmine and METS Ignited.
