Measurement 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 attributes 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. The main aim of this study is to determine a unified measure or quality index for the service quality of the measurement device across selected attributes. Each quality index will then correspond to the total predicted usability of the particular measurement method based on the industry needs. Furthermore, this study includes test of selected measurement methods and discusses the advantages and disadvantages for the same. It also proposes a new concept of an indirect measurement method to reduce the downtime during inspection.
