Life Cycle Management

Life cycle management

Joy Global's life cycle management (LCM) programs help you maximize productivity by optimizing your equipment performance throughout its life in the mine.

We offer a variety of LCM programs

  • cost-per-ton contracts,
  • cost-per-hour contracts,
  • machine exchange and parts programs, and
  • preventive maintenance programs

and will partner with you to configure a solution that meets your needs.

Depending on your requirements, we can manage your entire Joy Global fleet or simply provide tools to help you better manage it on your own.

Our LCM solutions link mines to the world's largest direct service network, connecting with you from more than 130 locations in 18 countries. Our direct service model links you with our entire organization, from field services to factory engineering and all disciplines in between. Our network gives you direct access to experts whenever support is needed. 

Since we understand that each mining environment has unique challenges, we partner with you to accurately and effectively scope your requirements. We work in tandem with you to develop customized service support, ranging from replacement parts to dedicated service. 

We work with you to continually review and optimize these strategies to meet your operational and production requirements, focusing on lowering the cost per ton, increasing production, and supporting a zero harm environment.
