Journal Article:

Abstract

The authors have considered their expectations and the future of the mining industry, aspects of equipment and the future of the Institution. The future for the industry and recognition of the vital role of engineering managers within the industry is viewed with optimism. Today's young engineers are well qualified and have the breadth of experience to meet the changes of the future with confidence and will achieve success. The environment will continue to change, engineers need to adapt to new requirements and ensure professional and technical training continues throughout their careers. Equipment and the relationships between operators and equipment suppliers will need to evolve positively, flexibility in supply and contractual agreements, linked to competitive prices will allow the industry to survive and prosper. The Institution must change to remain in existence and develop its influence, many options are available, corporate plans, business objectives and financial targets must be discussed at all levels in the Institution allowing informed decisions to be taken by the majority of the members and their representatives.
