Increase Planning Agility and Optimize Scheduling Management
Planning takes into account the mine materials, processing and supply chain capabilities, and together with costs and revenue, is able to produce an optimal plan to maximize overall profit.
This optimized plan sets targets for detailed scheduling, so that scheduled operations are not limited by a narrow view of the supply chain, and will not sacrifice long term efficiency for short term gain. Instead, scheduling is driven by the macro concerns that drive overall business profitability.
With integration to live data and a rich array of configurable displays, the Scheduler allows you to quickly see how closely the schedule is being followed, and re-schedule where necessary to meet the plan. Correct product is now produced at the right time, at the right quality, to take advantage of spot sales over and above contracted sales.
