Runge secures system patent rights

Mining technology services company, Runge, has secured the patent rights to the methodology of the overall framework - ‘method and system of integrated mine planning’ - for its enterprise solution, Mining Dynamics, which it says has been proven to improve predictability of mining operations that have a high degree of dynamic variability.

Runge says its Mining Dynamics technology couples business process execution with comprehensive access to information, and that any information from geology through to mine engineering / planning / scheduling, operations and reconciliation can be easily visualised, interrogated and reported to the executive, operations and systems management teams.

According to Runge’s VP enterprise mining solution, Glen Kuntz, the overall methodology and system patent can be summed up as the “three C’s of simplicity - communication, coordination and collaboration across the mining operation and executive levels to ‘deliver the right information to the right people at the right time’.”

“This methodology provides the ability to quickly collaborate in order to harmonise new ideas, win support and deliver ground breaking initiatives. These in turn generate short and long-term growth while significantly driving a competitive advantage.

“Planning in the mining industry is non-linear and dynamic and the use of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems in business is wide-spread. Whilst predictable supply inputs have been successful in the use of ERP systems, mining operations are different and have inherently unique characteristics. The planning components of ERP systems, designed for other industries and deployed within a mining operation, are not suitable without the direct coupling and integration of spatial mining information with transactional financial information.”


“In order to achieve this level of integration, Kuntz says Runge has formed business and technology partnerships with ERP companies, such as SAP, to help mining companies maximise their value and profitability through a focused approach to their mining operations.

This allows mining operations to quickly disseminate and distribute timely information throughout their organisation using a standard planning methodology and solution across the business intelligence layer.”

According to Kuntz, successful mining operations depend on the availability and reliability of information in order to make critical every day decisions, and “because of the complexity of mining data and the spatial characteristics associated with it, rapid universal access to trusted and accurate information has traditionally been difficult.

“Basing decisions on data that is misplaced, not universally accessible, out-dated, or incomplete can at best become a bottleneck in the decision making process and at worst be operationally and financially devastating.”

WEBINAR event: IT Alerting Best Practices 27 MAY 2PM AEST

LogicMonitor, the cloud-based IT infrastructure monitoring and intelligence platform, is hosting an online event at 2PM on May 27th aimed at educating IT administrators, managers and leaders about IT and network alerts.

This free webinar will share best practices for setting network alerts, negating alert fatigue, optimising an alerting strategy and proactive monitoring.

The event will start at 2pm AEST. Topics will include:

- Setting alert routing and thresholds

- Avoiding alert and email overload

- Learning from missed alerts

- Managing downtime effectively

The webinar will run for approximately one hour. Recordings will be made available to anyone who registers but cannot make the live event.



Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).
