Mine Scheduling and Optimising
Create mine plans with scheduling scenarios integrated to the block model, haulage and blast design.
Integrate your mine plans across multiple planning horizons
Optimise the schedule across multiple planning horizons while calculating cost, revenue and impact on net present value.
Reclaim lost millions with optimised scheduling
Hexagon scheduling tools guide critical capital investment decisions and reclaim millions of dollars in project value.
Managing scheduling challenges after a massive slide
Hexagon solutions helped Bingham Canyon quickly produce new schedules after a massive slide wiped out part of the pit.
Generating the best possible mine plan requires a holistic approach. Monitoring its execution is integral to ensuring an operation stays on track and that business objectives are achieved. Hexagon solutions help to align mine planning with mine operations so mines can realise maximum project value.
Taking a holistic approach
The mining industry reports hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue every year. Most of this value is forecasted ahead of time and reported in the life-of-mine and budget plans.
Mine planners regularly evaluate and update several mine plans simultaneously. Traditionally, long, medium and short-range plans have been prepared piecemeal by multiple departments, teams and software.
This approach can be difficult without the right software tools focused on open pit design and with no integration to the block model. Manual and spreadsheet calculations are time-consuming, prone to error and inefficient. Scheduling decisions might be based on inaccurate data.
Hexagon software enables a holistic approach, which empowers planning engineers to integrate mine plans across multiple planning horizons. This can improve efficiency at your mine, helping you to make informed decisions by applying timely and accurate data to minimise the variance between plan and execution.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
