Simulation Industry Association of Australia Mining and Construction Special Interest Group – Terms of Reference Objective To facilitate a coordinated approach to Mining and Construction simulation related activities in order to maximise benefits to users and opportunities for Australian industry , whilst maintaining an international perspective. Scope Simulation related activities include, but are not limited to, use of simulation for the purpose of: Planning development, Training and assessment at all levels of the industry, Exploration of feasibility options for future concepts Process planning and procedures development Accident/incident investigation Asset optimisation Activities Provide a framework for a number of forums to facilitate engagement of the simulation industry with Mining and Construction agencies, to facilitate dialogue, awareness and progression of key issues related to the use of simulation within the Mining and Construction environment Develop a clear statement of the role and benefits that simulation brings to the industry, including focussed case studies benchmarking return on investment Develop and communicate a shared awareness of the state of key issues related to the use of simulation within the Mining and Construction environment Develop and implement a coordinated Action Plan to help address key issues that ensure increased and effective utilisation of simulation within the Mining and Construction environment Facilitate SIAA lobbying of governments and Mining and Construction equipment manufacturers, potential end users and other relevant organisations as to the opportunities and benefits of simulation Facilitate industry awareness of the Mining and Construction market including user needs and key issues Facilitate promotion and demonstrations of simulation industry capabilities Provide the facility for a user / industry communications channel, prior to the development of specific opportunities, to encourage early interaction Provide a mechanism to facilitate access to research papers and other information relevant to the use of simulation in the industry Facilitate independent peer review of opportunities and project staging through development of a register of relevant experts 1 October 2011 Develop and maintain a taxonomy of simulation types and associated links to Australian Mining and Construction Simulation Technology Equipment and Services Facilitating teaming of suppliers Actively promote the professional development of Mining and Construction people utilising simulation Development, publication and distribution of technical, training and assessment standards. Governance The Mining and Construction SIG would be led by a committee, consisting of: Chairperson Deputy-Chairperson Secretary Committee members (typically 3-6) The sub-committee would report into the Executive on a monthly basis. Membership The Chairperson, Deputy-Chairperson, Secretary and a majority of the remaining Committee members would need to be Members of the SIAA. Members of the Special Interest Group do not need to be members of the SIAA. Funding The Secretary’s activity would be funded by the SIAA. Other members of the Committee and SIG contribute in a voluntary capacity. The Committee will prepare a budget for any other activities that require funding, for consideration by the SIAA Executive.
