Gold Producer Insources Maintenance to Release Value

Published: 2021

CHALLENGE

A major gold producer decided to insource maintenance activities previously carried out by a contractor to gain tighter control of cost expenditure and time. dss+ was asked to de-risk and accelerate the transition and ensure smooth business and operational continuity without negative impact on operations.



SOLUTION

dss+ evaluated the client’s business case including tradeoffs. To enable the company to transition sooner and ramp up quicker, dss+ completed a detailed insourcing planning diagnostic. The resulting plan addressed priority risks and opportunities associated with insourcing. dss+ next worked with the organization to ensure full visibility of the plan at head office and local operational levels to assist with and de-risk day-to-day execution.
