The Production Accounting Modules (PAM) in Dynamics are essential components of any metallurgical operation and are an integral part of the enterprise resource planning process in mining.
Three different PAM modules specifically address the nature of mining operations and production requirements in progressive refinement processes culminating in mineral sales.
The first production accounting module within the xMMP suite is PAM 1 and concerns the entire process of mining operations, with a focus on production planning, scheduling and management and enables elements such as activity management, material management and production KPIs.
The xMMP for Dynamics PAM 1 module assists in the effective planning, execution and control of operations to meet the planned production targets, aligned to Life-of-Mine schedules, for mineral-rich ore.
Microsoft Dynamics Ax Production Accounting Module 2 (PAM 2) is the second module within our Production Accounting Module software suite included in the xMMP (exploration, Mining and Metals Processing) platform. PAM 2 is used in processing plants and tracks the location and value of the commodity, essentially improving the visibility and control of the revenue generated from the plants’ output.
The second production accounting module, PAM 2, covers surface and refinement operations as well as metals accounting, incorporating results of proper mineral sampling and analysis processes, batch calculations and numbering, reliable weighing, and mineral sales and balances. It can also be integrated with laboratory (LIMS) and control (SCADA/PLC) systems.
The xMMP for Dynamics PAM 2 is responsible for the accurate tracking of the mineral content value throughout the entire complex production process, resulting in vital information about material consumption, usage and yields in metallurgy operations.
The third production accounting module, PAM 3, manages the metal and mineral revenue generated by the production plant output. Key functionalities include stock tracking, pricing, cash flow monitoring, revenue management and cash receipts and invoice generation.
The xMMP for Dynamics PAM 3 module automates and optimises sales management and revenue generation by taking into account commodity prices, penalties, agreements and contracts to manage and conclude the product sales cycle.
All modules of the production accounting product suite for Dynamics are essential repositories of mining production data for specialised mining planning and production. Such integrated data supports more accurate, reliable and timely delivery of information to mining stakeholders for better decision making.
