Prevas supplying traceability solution to Orica

Prevas is helping Orica Mining Services increase traceability in its production as well improve the degree of service it provides to its customers. Prevas is developing a manufacturing-related IT system tailored to Orica's needs. The order value is approximately SEK 2 million and commissioning is expected at the beginning of 2012.
Orica Mining Services (previously Dyno Nobel) in Gyttorp manufactures, develops and markets fuse material and bulk explosives for the mining and contracting industries. As a means of achieving full traceability in its production, Orica is investing in a new traceability solution developed by Prevas.
The system solution is based on Prevas' sound experience and includes modules from previously developed traceability solutions. Prevas' total commitment includes, for example, project management, system development and support of the production critical system.
"Prevas' experience in production-related IT solutions and its procedures for managing projects, in combination with the company´s ability to provide total commitment, prompted us to select Prevas as our cooperation partner," says Mats Andersson, IT Project Manager at Orica Mining Services. 
"The industry face extremely tough global competition in today's world. Given the increasing demands from public authorities, trade organizations and customers, demands are also increasing on our customers to be able to produce efficiently and with the right quality, as well as with good traceability. We are very happy to be given the opportunity to help Orica," says Matz Axelsson, Business Unit Manager at Prevas.
