OPDS is 100% script-free and made up of pre-defined logic. When combined with the tacit knowledge of mining engineers, it will automatically determine what is practically possible to achieve across one or multiple mining operations. This agility gives engineers the ability to respond rapidly to the market and maximise output, delivering shareholder value.
Unique, process-driven UI. Learn in a few days, implement in a few weeks.
Automatically creates the scheduling reserves from geology and design, whilst handling massive models.
Simultaneously schedules mining and dumping, so you know the source and destination of every step.
Detailed haulage modelling of every movement in the mine with automatic reporting of equipment requirements.
Intuitive, sophisticated mining rules ensure schedules are always feasible and practical.
Dynamic scheduling allows a mix of manual and automatic techniques in the same schedule.
Incredibly fast scheduling speed – easy to study different scenarios.
Integrated Product Optimiser finds the best way to process, blend and stockpile products to maximise value.
Directly integrated with other RPM Solutions and ERPs.
Underpinning RPM’s Open Pit Diamond Solution (OPDS) is a powerful scheduling engine that does all the heavy lifting without compromising sophistication and capabilities. From an individual site through to multi-site and global operations, the parametric approach adopted by OPDS means engineers can amplify their decision-making process. This embedded intelligence, together with our intuitive user interface, increases mine productivity and provides rapid ROI with a solution that is scalable, intuitive and fast to learn. OPDS is the only Enterprise Planning solution that complies with industry standards and aligns to ISA-95 delivering true collaboration across the mining value chain.
Understanding the intricacies of the extraction schedule is now possible with OPDS. It is possible to work with any subsection of your plan – one large loader, one section of the pit or a specific combination in the mine to create a very precise schedule. Engineers can focus on the detail whilst the Solutions carries out the bulk of the tedious tasks with Advanced Destination Scheduler and Product Optimiser.
It is not unusual for mining operations to process material from other sources, such as an underground section or a neighbouring mine. With ‘external material sources’, OPMS considers materials from underground operations and 3rd party sources when optimising for product value, blending requirements and process plant utilisation. It is no longer an afterthought that needs to be added to the schedule but one that is fully integrated into the planning and scheduling process.
XPAC Solutions manages the entire scheduling process within one application. Destination scheduling and haulage modelling are integrated as part of the process. Simultaneously schedule mining and dumping as part of the schedule capturing every movement for a true reflection of what is happening on-site.
With their intuitive, process-driven user interface, highly automated mining rules and rapid scheduling speed, Engineers can focus on delivering value knowing the solution has the mining logic covered. You are no longer forced to accept the best option the planner can produce manually in the limited time available. Our scheduling solutions give Engineers the opportunity to explore alternative ‘what if’ scenarios and truly understand how best to drive the mine’s production.
