The value of proven activity scheduling at Arianne Phosphate
Arianne Phosphate is designing its Lac a Paul phosphate mine in Canada using Hexagon activity scheduling software.
Without the right software tools focused on open pit design and with no integration to the block model, building a mine design can be challenging. Hexagon software allows you to generate mine plans using scheduling scenarios integrated to the block model, haulage and blast design options.
For engineers tasked with mine design, the lack of a centralised platform that seamlessly directs data from all planning stages can create problems. In particular, communicating the plan with operations and safety personnel becomes challenging. The potential for execution to deviate from the plan increases.
Hexagon software provides the tools you need to produce strategic-level mine plans for scoping or feasibility-level studies via a modern, easy-to-use interface for quick creation of pit optimisations.
Engineers can analyse multiple potential scenarios both in the pit optimisation and scheduling process easily with robust case management tools. The ultimate pit can be determined based on the pit optimisation, geotechnical constraints, and other physical limitations quickly and easily.
Strategic planning interfaces are easy to learn, and integrated scheduling ensures the optimal life-of-mine schedule can be determined, narrowing the gap between plan and execution.
