Product Development (UX/UI) – GBI Equipment Benchmarking

A meeting between myself and the owner of GBI (a Mining Equipment Benchmarking service) identified the concept of a dynamic subscription-based model for producing equipment benchmark reports. The meeting was facilitated by a Government program to connect traditional businesses with interactive media companies.

I successfully managed all aspects of the project with the four key stakeholders including: concept development, planning, UX/UI design, user testing, development and deployment. The project was delivered on time and budget, ready for launch in Las Vegas’s MinExpo. GBI clients can pay for access, interrogate the data to gain important insight prior to the purchase of expensive trucks, diggers and dragline mining equipment. The interface gives managed online access to 8000 years of operational data from mining equipment located in mines all over the world.

Users are able to generate comparison across a set of individual items of equipment and then generate a report. The comparison report can then be modified using various KPI’s for clarity of performance statistics.

Stored timestamped insight reports for feasibility studies and internal reporting on capacity and maintenance issues


A critical feature was a PDF exporter that included all charts, graphs, data and timestamp for report validity.

Partly funded by the Federal government and the University of Technology Sydney I worked with the traditional mine reporting and equipment specialists to build the digital product and interface into their operational and process data from hundreds of mines worldwide.
