What is STEM ?

Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics. It seems everyone is talking about STEM. But is STEM anything more than a fancy acronym? And what has it got to do with The Advitech Group?
Government and industry continue to promote the importance of STEM to Australia's future. A recognised decline in science and maths participation in schools has resulted in high school programs that encourage participation in these areas of study and inspire a future career path in STEM. Federal and state programs, such as grants and tax incentives, support research, development, innovation and commercialisation of new technologies.

Innovate Your Way to Better Noise Management

Innovate

Noise management is one of the top three day to day management issues for mining operations.

It is inevitable that large scale mining operations will generate noise. When you combine this with near neighbours, it is no surprise that noise impacts will occur.

But how do you know whether noise is an issue for your operation? And how do you innovate to ensure your noise management dollars are spent wisely?

To be most effective, the management of noise needs to be driven by your business.  It must be integrated with your operating philosophy and managed like any other constraint to the sustainability of your operation. Noise management is not separate to production planning or mine design.  In fact, it is integral to these processes in order to maximise your productivity.............
