As part of Uzbekistan’s “Digital Uzbekistan 2030 strategy,” NMMC has been actively integrating modern IT solutions into its operations. Over the past three years, the company’s IT Department has developed more than 20 information systems, effectively addressing around 200 production and management tasks. Notably, between 2021 and 2023, NMMC undertook over 40 initiatives to embed digital technologies across its production and management processes.

In 2023, a pivotal milestone was reached with the establishment of a unified situational production control center at the Central Mining Administration. Situated at Hydrometallurgical plant №2, this center is tasked with overseeing and managing various processes including geological exploration, ore mining, transportation, and processing.

NMMC’s dedication to digital innovation earned recognition at ICTWeek Uzbekistan 2023, where it secured the top position in the “Best enterprise for the implementation of digital technologies” category, with an impressive score of 95.2 points.

Looking ahead to 2024, NMMC is set to embark on nine major projects aimed at automating production and management processes, in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group. A substantial budget of 253.6 billion soums has been allocated for these initiatives, facilitating enhancements to existing information systems such as enterprise resource management (ERP) and transport management, alongside the introduction of four new systems including personnel management (HCM), business analysis for procurement management (BI), project management, and digitalization of ecology and environmental protection (ESG).

Moreover, the company is prioritizing the training and development of its workforce, with 405 employees slated to enhance their skills, alongside an additional 40 specialists who will undergo training via international educational platforms, focusing on IT within the mining industry.

The extensive adoption of IT within NMMC not only promises heightened efficiency and quality of work but also underscores efforts to mitigate human error, reduce costs, and prevent production downtimes.
