Slider3 Performance

Customers use our suite of software as the backbone of their frontline operations.

Successful digitisation of a management operating system (MOS) requires integration with key IT/OT systems to dynamically connect the plans of all departments to the work of frontline teams.

Our software allows teams to Connect, Collaborate and Control all work across the site, replacing traditional spreadsheet, whiteboard and paper-based tools.

Commitment precedes performance

We believe successful operations are driven by people who make commitments to each other and then deliver on them.

When expectations are clearly communicated and agreed through effective coordination and respectful negotiation, teams can commit and be confident of achieving targets.

Our suite of software interacts with the behaviours of people to form a ‘Commitment System‘ that empowers teams to commit to and execute the right work, at the right time, right across the site.

Andy Greig (Former President of the Bechtel Mining and Metals Global Business Unit) explains the importance of commitment

Commitment System

All work is planned, coordinated, visible, safe and productive. Operations shift gear into an ultra-responsive plan-do-check-act cycle, driving better decision-making and continuous improvement.

As a result, more of the plan gets done more often: increasing production, decreasing cost, improving compliance to plan, and making operations safer.

Our story

We started out as consultants many years ago, making spreadsheets and whiteboards for mine sites. We realised these tools were not really doing the job: they weren’t sustainable and were hard for people to use.

Since launching our first product Fewzion over a decade ago, Commit Works’ suite of software has helped operations eliminate day-to-day variability, empowered committed and coordinated teams, and helped teams to sustainably improve results.

We now work with customers on five continents, across multiple resource types and mining methods. Our growing list of customers includes Anglo American, Barrick, BHP, Glencore, Macmahon, Mastermyne, Oceana Gold, Peabody and Rio Tinto.

Reduce variability to improve productivity

Most operational sites can make huge productivity gains by improving the coordination of frontline work. Our software enables operations to reduce day-to-day variability and improve productivity by more than 10% within weeks of implementation.

What people say about us

Andy GreigFormer President of Mining & Metals Business, Bechtel

Fewzion takes planning down to the detail level for the supervisor and it’s completely different to anything that exists in the mining or construction industry, so it’s going to be completely disruptive.

Mark FranklinManaging Director, First Principles Consulting

Of all the various bits of software that can be introduced to the workforce, I would suggest Fewzion is amongst the most disruptive and with the highest impact potential.

Dolf WirthBusiness Improvement Leader Consultant

Having implemented many systems including Oracle and a $200 mil SAP program, as well as bespoke systems, I can say that the Fewzion system is one of the best I have seen for driving results – easy to use and a fraction of the price.

Glen BrittonHead of Underground Coal Operations, Anglo American

Fewzion is the backbone of our operations and played it's part in us achieving a record year in 2017.

Alan WillisRio Tinto

When the site is using Fewzion correctly, it is a great tool making everyone aware of planned work. It is also not a difficult product to use.

Justice NyandeniAnglo American

Using the system I have found better results in terms of planning which resulted to good production performance.

Sean McCarthySuperintendent Engineering, Barrick Hemlo

The project had an immediate impact on underground production, especially production drilling. There were many examples during the first couple of weeks where the control room supervisor was able to identify an emerging issue and redeploy resources to minimize the impact on production. Pre Fewzion any one of these issues would have cost the mine half a shift of procudtion from 2 or 3 pieces of equipment.

Matt JurakDevelopment Superintendent, Glencore

We've increased meters by about 30% and are now hitting budget for the first time, we're just a lot more organized than we were.

Scott DobbieProduction Manager

The key is that everyone can see 'plan vs actual' all over the site so there's no hiding.

Alisha BaxFormer Continuous Improvement Manager

The transition from an Excel-based macro enabled spreadsheet to Fewzion was a revolution, by replacing large numbers of spreadsheets and whiteboards it provides full transparency to any level within the organisation.

Marcus Lindahgumede

Fewzion makes planning and scheduling much easier and enables work required to be brought together under one platform.
