Optimisation Capabilities‏‏‎ ‎Scheduling

SOT is the industry’s only strategic financial optimisation tool for underground mines that maximises productivity and profitability outcomes by optimising the net present value (NPV) of the mine schedule.

As a comprehensive mine schedule optimisation tool, SOT uses an evolutionary search algorithm to generate optimised schedules that maximise the NPV of an underground resource. SOT is purpose-built for scenario planning and comparisons. This provides mine planners with the ability to analyse multiple strategies and inform the selection of alternative, high-value NPV schedules. Operations can extract more value from an underground resource with an NPV optimised schedule, thereby mitigating risk and decreasing the payback period.
