Abstract [en]

Scheduling of mine operations is complicated by the large variations of input parameters, which in,addition is constantly changing, leading to a tedious task which demands managing of severalhundred of activities per week. Scheduling and planning tools exist for single processes alone, but notool has been constructed to coordinate all processes and including real-time information. Such asolution would have a large implication for in-mine resource and production optimization throughtimely management of real-time delays mitigating the risk of unplanned stops in production throughearly rescheduling, yielding lower operation costs due to better utilisation of resources.The need for a more flexible solution for medium range scheduling has been sought after from themining industry for long, although the technology for receiving real-time information and handlingthereof has not previously existed. However, today, many mines have installed mine-wide Wi-Finetworks, for the first time enabling real-time 3D visualisation and communication with all in-mineprocesses and personnel. This project aims to build and demonstrate a working prototype of a tool,designed to coordinate real-time information and actions of mining processes, to optimize thescheduling of resources used in mining.It is estimated that optimized scheduling would increase safety for humans involved in theoperations through decreased traffic in heavily used areas. Also, it would decrease energyconsumption (for e.g. trucks and ventilation) and related emissions per produced ton, as well asdecrease the man-hours per ton through optimal use of resources.
