Optimizing Mine Headings Availability
Development productivity is strongly related to heading availability. Increasing our heading availability would increase development productivity which in turn improves overall production rates. There is a large variation in the number of headings available between monthly to weekly to daily schedules. Generally development is scheduled at four levels: Budget (yearly), Monthly Operating Plan (MOP), weekly, and Execution (day to day actual availability).
Potential Questions to answer
- What optimisation techniques can be developed to streamline the process and address the variations in number of headings?
