Inspection of the liner wear in the mill of an ore dressing plant is one of the critical parameters in the context of mill downtime and production performance. The total downtime cost during measurement can be reduced by a significant fraction by using appropriate measurement devices. Due to the different quality dimensions of a measuring device, e.g. the cost, accuracy, reliability and accessibility, it is necessary to select an appropriate device based on the specific needs of the industry. Customer satisfaction is perhaps the most important performance measure for the service quality of the device, and therefore this paper provides an approach to define the customer satisfaction with reference to the mentioned quality dimensions. The main aim of this paper is to determine a unified measure or quality index for the service quality of the measurement device across all the dimensions. Each quality index will then correspond to the total predicted usability of the particular measurement method based on the industry needs. Furthermore, this study also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of existing measurement methods and proposes an indirect measurement method to reduce the downtime during inspection.
