Truck Operator Application PTBA and Weight Scale Integration
PT. Bukit Asam Tbk (PTBA) is engaged in coal mining, including general surveying, exploration, exploitation, processing, refining, transportation and trade, maintenance of special coal port facilities for internal and external needs, operation of steam power plants for internal and external needs. and provide consulting services related to the coal mining industry and its derivative products, and plantation development. In 1993, the Company was appointed by the Government of Indonesia to develop the Coal Briquette Business Unit. PT BA has several mining locations, one of which is in Tanjung Enim, South Sumatra.
In coal transfer transportation activities, PT BA has several types of vehicles that are used, such as heavy equipment, train trucks, barges and so on. Truck is a vehicle that is widely used by PT BA in transportation activities. Trucks have the ability to enter the mining area with fairly heavy terrain and have high transport speeds. The weakness of this conveyance is that its capacity is not too large, so it takes a lot of fleets to be used. With the large number of trucks in the mining area, PT BA has difficulty monitoring this activity.
We were entrusted with helping PT BA in upgrading its monitoring capabilities, especially in monitoring trucks. We build a truck operatot application system and integrate it with a weight scale. This system will optimize the ability to monitor truck transactions. A system that will integrate all location points starting from the mine site, truck scale, stockpile and all locations related to PT BA's supply chain activities.
After some time, we collaborated with PT Bukit Asam's PIC succeeded in building a truck operator application system. By involving the related PIC, making the system developed to be very user friendly which makes it very easy for operators to operate. The application also cuts operational time, thereby eliminating the queues that occur so that coal moving activities become more optimal. The system created contains:
This data data will be synchronized with each point because it has been integrated. Thus, the data contained in applications in the mining area and office are always the same and updated.
The benefits obtained by PT Bukit Asam are very many, starting from those felt by the operators in the mining area to the officers at the office who are in charge of monitoring the data. With this system, the existing data can be obtained quickly and precisely by the operator, making it possible to make strategic decisions in order to solve problems or optimize operations.
