Technology such as computer simulation and advanced analytics prove to be extremely useful for optimizing mining operations, improving safety, as well as testing new ideas and new equipment.
Computer Simulation allows clients to better understand and optimize their mining operations. Once your operations are modelled clients can do detailed "What If" analyses to determine the impacts of a change or even to test out a good idea. Simulation is a highly visual tool that allows leaders and non-experts to understand and test the impacts of changes to better manage operations.
Computer simulation can model mine operations to determine optimal cycle time, spot bottlenecks in traffic, determine the best number, size and type of vehicles for the job, and much more.
