Business challenge

Our client needed help with identifying key levers to generate improvement, conduct a gap analysis between current performance, budgets and targets, and determine realistic goals for each key lever.


A mining company wanted to increase bottom‑line performance by reducing their All‑In Sustaining Cost (AISC).

They had developed regional aspirational targets for their AISC, but required assistance in assessing whether these targets were realistic and how they compared to the agreed budget.


inflated All-In Sustaining Cost (AISC) uncovered


How we helped

  • Built value driver trees examining AISC per ounce for 12 sites over two days with the source of variance functionality
  • Conducted sensitivity analysis on regional and site value driver trees to identify big impact levers and regional AISC
  • Identified areas of under‑performance by comparing prior year’s budget to the prior year’s actuals, and identified areas of ‘fat’ in the budget by comparing the current year’s budget to the prior year’s actuals
  • Identified improvement initiatives to propose realistic targets for AISC key levers using best practice data, past performance and our experience

Key Takeaway

The installation of WiredUp was key to our success as it:

  • Visualised ‘the whole picture’ across multiple mining sites
  • Enabled to ability to drill down on levers to identify the most sensitive key performance indicators
