A Truly Integrated Solution

Show me:


Intuitive, Practical and Script free

With a process-driven workflow that’s 100% script-free, MinePlanner is fast to implement and even faster to learn. The sequential steps that form the scheduling process eliminate the need for complicated scripting and costly consultants. Rather than complex menus and options hidden within deeply nested dialogues, the repeatable process provides every option when required.

RPM MinePlanner has utilised a discoverable engine making it easy to use so you can find all the elements and features of the system simply and quickly.

Integrated Product Optimiser

Product Optimiser is the industry leader for automatically finding the best way to process, blend and stockpile mined materials. MinePlanner is the only scheduling solution that can simultaneously compare and optimise waste and ore ensuring the optimal mining decisions are being made for every bucket. The new Product Optimiser functions in MinePlanner yet again set the benchmark for the rest of the industry.

Single Scheduling Process

MinePlanner manages the entire scheduling process within one application. Destination scheduling, materials management, disturbance reporting 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, without the need to go back and balance it out.

Multi-Scenario Analysis

With a process-driven user interface, automated mining rules and rapid scheduling speed, engineers can focus on delivering value, trusting that the solution has the mining logic covered. MinePlanner allows engineers to explore alternative ‘what if’ scenarios to understand how best to drive the mine’s production in changing market conditions.

Smart Scheduling

MinePlanner includes manual or automatic scheduling or a hybrid of both all rolled into a single engine. Scheduling locking (ability to lock a schedule from any point, ie lock the first 12 periods then schedule from the next period onwards), and Break Points (ability to run a little and advance the schedule piece by piece) bolster the solution to be practical and intuitive.

Engineers have the flexibility to work in detail when required, then let the speed of auto-scheduler take over the more tedious tasks. Regardless of the method, RPM’s destination scheduling automatically manages the movement of waste to dumps and the Product Optimiser finds the best way to process and manage stockpiles.

Intuitive User Interface

With the intuitive, process-driven user interface, highly automated mining rules and extremely 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 solution provides the opportunity to explore alternative ‘what if’ scenarios to truly understand how best to drive the mine’s production in changing market conditions.

Workplace Management

RPM MinePlanner is an Enterprise solution with a collaborative workspace. Mutliple users can work in reserving, scheduling, haulage and destinations all in the same workspace so management of the schedule is easy and fast. There’s no more jumping between applications to update and manipulate files, all updates are uploaded and shared between the system seamlessly.

An Enterprise Solution

MinePlanner uses an Enterprise model so all changes are incorporated into the planning data, anywhere, anytime. Users are notified when there are changes to the block model or other files so they can decide whether to incorporate those changes into the current schedule. The entire team can collaborate and communicate as changes are made to ensure effective and adaptive decision-making.

Industry Workflows

RPM MinePlanner is the only scheduling solution of its kind that can compare and optimise complex options, ensuring the optimal mining decisions are realised to identify the most cost-effective scheduling and extraction sequence. With MinePlanner, you can always meet production targets and qualities as the solution automatically find the best way to process, blend and stockpile mined materials to maximise the value of one or more products. Unlike other mine planning solutions that perform these tasks one after the other, MinePlanner looks at all options in parallel creating a truly optimised solution.
