digital transformation

Client-centred project, asset & contractor management

Guaranteed enhancement of

Operational performance

Asset performance

Supply chain efficiency



Founded upon a proven track record as the ideal catalyst to kick-start an organization's road to recovery,  based upon two decades of experience with the aid of Tacmin's business performance improvement system has enabled us to develop a well-established decision analysis process integrated into the overall project.




Following numerous 3-5 year, EPCM and PMC assignments on more than 52  international projects and further driven by our visions and values as well as the lack of contract alternatives, by 2010 Tacmin has organically grown to cater for all aspects relating to engineering, management, construction and optimisation of our Clients’ operations.



Our partnership programs are comprehensive. Following many years of project life-cycle system development and real-time application has made it possible for us to analyse, identify and resolve less optimal practices. Through lean-construction, continuous improvement and digital transformation, we optimise and improve from design to close-out.

The markets we serve







Operational performance improvement with dynamic cost engineering

Since 1996 we have generated 1210 mining cost benchmark models for international Blue Chip mining companies, with project values fetching up to US$ 5 billion, during which we simulated the Clients’ mine site conditions and imported geological and mine engineering data basis of up to 100 Gb for more than 12 different commodities - of which the annual ROM production on some exceeded 60,000,000 tons per annum. During this time we have developed and applied resource data basis with complete Life-cycle costing of more than 300 different equipment models and sizes, with hauling equipment that ranges from 25 to 380 payload tons and matching shovels of up to 45 m3 bucket capacity. 

Operational Readiness Management System (ORMS)

Tacmin’s ORMS is designed to bring full transparency to Operational Readiness teams, fostering engagement and accountability across the organisation. Companies meet their ramp-up curves and budget forecasts, improve safety and reduce implementation costs. The intuitive interface to Tacmin’s ORMS promotes sound project governance with multilevel, real-time management reports, built-in change management capability, and a host of tools for necessities like package execution, benchmarking, auditing, decision analysis, progress control and team interaction. With factual activity-based data, it is the single point of project status that is tracked in real-time and analysed by leading project management industry professionals.

Digitally Connected Contracting (DCC)

Tacmin Madini Australia (Pty) Ltd has launched its Digitally Connected Contract (DCC) solution, a cloud-based application designed to optimise mobile asset performance, improve productivities and safety and reduce construction and asset maintenance cost. Not only do we have the capability to collect, monitor and report real-time asset performance for static and mobile equipment, in addition to the benefits DCC  has to offer,  we can easily integrate our​​​​​​​ Operational Readiness Management System, enabling us to offer one of the most powerful Contract Management Control Systems on the market. Amongst several others, on a standalone basis our DCC solution offers the following value-added asset management and maintenance features:

Gives cause to increased reliability and availability.

Reduces the number of unplanned machine stops.

Know the condition of equipment without invasive investigation.

With a high rate of probability know the basic cause of machine malfunction.

Minimize spare parts inventory / consumption.

Check repairs, balancing and alignment.

Indentify defects on machines during warranty-time.

Reduces maintenance costs.

Cost savings caused by early fault detection.

Provides analytical data to enhance maintenance planning.

Identify Design / Manufacturing faults.

Real-time notification of dangerous and aggressive driving.

Real-time driver mechanical and technical behaviour.

Real-time detection of mechanical maintenance and/or failure for preventative maintenance.

Real-time monitoring and control of your fleet.

Reduce fuel consumption.

We apply Lean construction principals during contract management assignments

From Lean construction principles to integration of the Clients engineering to the extent that inefficiencies in contract operations are being addressed and eliminated. Including but not limited to contract management assignments are ongoing reviews of plans, operational assessments, asset management, maintenance reviews and optimisation, innovative fleet management systems, contract administration, production performance and cost improvements.

In addition to the value add and due to improved efficiencies

the contractor's operation becomes more profitable
