Who We Are

TBOS Consulting was formed to provide mining operational excellence services in fleet management systems applications to bridge the gap between FMS deployments and achieving excellence.

We are a bunch of mining engineers with over 30 years combined practical and hands-on experience in mining operations and technology applications with focus in fleet management systems implementations, end-user training, system configurations and network communications.

Throughout our travels and having listened to FMS users and stakeholders globally, we see clear trends in issues facing mines. We have identified gaps in ways fleet management systems are implemented and utilized, the change management required for the introduction of a new system, training and functionality configurations to network communications setup.

At TBOS Consulting, we strive to be a tier-1 mining operational excellence consulting services provider and go that extra mile to help and support our customers globally to get the most from the fleet management system and real return on their investments.

We have expertise, strong and solid knowledge in the following fleet management systems:

Our Approach

At TBOS Consulting, we believe mining technology is ONLY as good its users and will deliver desired results if implemented and configured correctly and used as recommended.

We are shifting the dial from “just” performance to improved and sustainable performance by being intentional and deliberate to the little things that are often the pain points.

“Improving productivities, total cost of ownership (TCO) and ROI are real concerns for mining companies globally whether small or large and even contract miners. And because mines are constantly faced with tighter budgets and increasing operating costs, we focus on our customers’ needs by setting realistic targets and tracking short interval controls”.

“Capturing real time data and setting baseline KPIs do not guarantee mines to enjoy smooth transition to digital transformation and excellence. Most mines continue to use papers on daily basis. To this end, we place emphasis in effective change management, face-to-face practical training and coaching from our expert mining engineers on this journey to achieve operational excellence”

    Example of how to improve production and save cost.

    Quantifying the cost of loading units hang time with focus on reducing truck spotting time.



    Shovel can load 10 loads per hour


    Hang time = 18 seconds


    Shovel work hours = 10 hours per shift = 20 hours per day (24 hours)


    Assume a truck size (payload capacity) or 220 tonnes


    Assume shovel load time = 2.5 mins

    From the above:

    Time lost per hour = 18 x 10 = 180 secs = 3 mins

    Time lost per day = 3 x 20 = 60 mins = 1 hour

    Time lost per year = 365 hours

    Production lost

    Loads per day = 60 / 2.5 = 24

    Loads per year = 24 x 365 = 8760

    Production lost = 8760 x 220 = 1,927,200 tonnes

    Note: Similar scenario can be used by focussing on reducing truck wait (queue) time by 30 seconds.
