New scheduling software for open cut coal miners

Commercial software company Runge Pincock Minarco (RPM) recently launched a mining planning software product that focuses entirely on scheduling an open cut coal mine.

The Open Cut Coal XPAC Solution gives miners a standardised approach to scheduling across their operations while simplifying the process of creating robust schedules.

Miners can use the program for visibility and transparency to produce JORC and NI 43-101 compliance statements.

RMP’s product manager for mine planning, Alun Philips introduced the new software.

“Open Cut Coal belongs to our family of commodity specific solutions, based on the powerful scheduling engine of our flagship XPAC product.

“This family of products introduces a simplified, user-friendly approach to mine planning reducing the complexity of generating production schedules.”

The Open Cut Coal features in-built intelligence, which means users no longer need custom-written scripts. You can spend more time engineering instead of scripting an outcome.

“One of the biggest hurdles with other applications in the past has been the need to develop and maintain complex scripts to generate a workable schedule.

“In our XPAC Solutions, we removed the need for engineers to become script writers and debuggers, allowing them to spend significantly more time planning their mine than managing their data.”
