The aim of this article is to demonstrate the benefits and justification of the use of GPS systems as a function of telemetry monitoring and control of production in the mining industry. The advantages of using GPS systems and information technology to manage the production in mining compared to the traditional way of managing in details are presented in this article. The analysis of the benefits and the feasibility were performed on the implemented case study with already applied GPS system in “RMU Banovici”. Monitoring by GPS tracking systems is finding ways to reduce operational costs and the identification of possible bottlenecks in the production process to slow down or prevent the growth of production and business. In addition to the revenue side of the increase in output per unit of work, we have reduced costs. Thereby GPS system in the market economy in the function of obtaining lower prices of coal as a product becomes not only justified but necessary. Analyzing the results so far of the application, after the introduction of a system for telemetric monitoring and management part of the technological process, to be noted that the time of operation of the main machinery increased significantly. We realize the benefits this system which offers the implementation for monitoring, and primarily this system raised awareness of employees that has a constant supervision of their work.
