MMX Mineracao e Metalicos S.A.
Sistema MMx Minas-Rio
Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo, Brazil
The Sistema Minas-Rio mine is projected to produce nearly 27 million metric
tons of iron ore when it reaches full capacity by 2011. The operation will ensure
an efficient export corridor for center-west and southeast Brazil, spurring the
nation’s economic growth. This project is particularly noteworthy for its vast
reserves in Minas Gerais state, which might hold 2 billion tons of iron ore.
Project Wise customization allowed MMX to manage the design process
through production, approval, and release of all documentation needed to
conceptualize, fabricate, and construct the Minas-Rio project. All project
milestone dates were accomplished using Project Wise through the web,
enabling MMX to integrate more than 100 third-party companies with effective
time gains and a low operational cost.
