Developing a context-based alert system for haulage cycle optimization

Mining Engineering, 2016, Vol. 68, No. 2, pp. 17-23
Coronado, Pedro; Tenorio, Victor


PREVIEW:

Productivity in openpit mines depends on the observation and adjustment of critical phases of operation. As one of the most expensive activities in openpit production, optimization of the load-haul-dump cycle becomes a critical aspect to address. Using simulation techniques and an ad hoc methodology for analyzing the key performance indicators (KPIs) involved in the production cycle, it is possible to compare actual performance and ideal operating conditions and develop an alert system when operating conditions are subpar with the expected production standards.
