Short-term Scheduling (Caving)

Develop and optimize short-term production schedules for caving operations

Determining the logistics to provide for caving operations in mining has multiple constraints that are not common to other process segments. The way work orders have to be executed depends on the variability of the product. Generation of optimum production orders requires consideration that: product grade varies according to the geology; extracted blocks can only be mixed according to their composition; and, tonnage of blocks to be moved will require many resources.

The Short-term Scheduling (Caving) solution enables you to model the orebody, slicing and dicing it, as you apply many factors such as grades, mixing constraints, mining rates, and costs. Based on those criteria, it will generate the optimum extraction sequence.
