Performance needs to be measured in order to manage the business goals. Performance measurement (PM) has caught the imagination of almost all industries in the last decade. A number of PM frameworks are in use by different industries. Due to global competition and high dynamic market demand, the pressure on the process industries like; the mining industries, is too high. In order to manage and meet the challenging market demands of high productivity, mining industries are trying to apply the concept of PM and performance measures. Before applying performance measures for PM, the production process need to be organized and the management needs to be fully committed for PM implementation. PM measures can be divided into hard and soft measures, which are necessary to monitor, control and measure the productivity. Hard measures like the technical, productivity and financial measures can be well defined and relatively easy to control, where as soft parameters pertaining to human factors like; competence, motivation and organizational climate are critical and hard to measure. In this paper, the authors have discussed the concept of performance measurement and measures for achieving desired productivity. Based on their experience of a related project, the authors have discussed the performance measures for LKAB underground mining industry.
