EPS is a class-leading scheduler suitable for Underground and Open Pit Scheduling, Optimization and Visualization. MineRP EPS delivers unrivalled capabilities to schedule both production and non-production tasks (like maintenance) in one user-friendly but powerful enterprise scheduler.
Users of EPS can interactively update schedule rules and dependencies between tasks or use levelling algorithms to optimize schedules automatically. Gantt charts and many other reports provide schedulers with rich mine planning KPIs.
Unified Technical & Financial Planning & Control
The MineRP Platform fully integrates Design, Sequence, Schedule, and Work Management in one, and takes this complete production sequence further into fully automated integration with ERP Systems including SAP, Microsoft Dynamics and others.
What this means is that mine plans and control and ERP planning and control are fully, bi-directionally unified – a patented process we refer to as Unified Business Planning.
3D Visualization with Online and Offline Sharing and Collaboration
MineRP offers a variety of 3D visualization and collaboration tools. Immediately connected to the Mine Plan, MineRP’s EPSViz offers fully interactive sequence, schedule, visualize and animate capabilities.
Beyond the abilities offered by EPSViz, MineRP SpatialDash, SpatialAnalyzer and SpatialPublisher collectively provide internet/web browser-based spatial analytic and reporting capabilities using spatially referenced mining data.
Master Business Schedule
Over and above the fast and reliable schedules with mining-specific algorithms that have always been its hallmark, EPS is now fully integrated with the MineRP CATe (Capability, Activity, Time and Environment) database, which means that scheduling with MineRP goes beyond production activities, and also includes any non-production activities which have to be brought in to the schedule to arrive at a detailed, integrated operational schedule – or as we call it, a Master Business Schedule.
With MineRP, clients have access to Elytica’s on-tap, API-based Optimization Services, integrated with MineRP planning, scheduling and operations management tooling.
Outsourced complex algorithms services, like Max NPV for planning, better blend, maximize equipment utilization, lower energy usage options, multi-variant prioritization, constraints testing and predictive modelling.
One Schedule across Planning Horizons
With MineRP Planner and EPS, each shift merely becomes the next shift in the life of mine plan of the mine. MineRP’s continuous planning capability means that long-, medium- and short-term planning are done on a single, fully integrated, flexible schedule.
What this means is that the impact of changes in the short-term plans are reflected in the medium- and long-term plans – allowing mining operations to understand the influence of operational changes on the strategic intent expressed by the mine plan.
Integrated with MineRP Work Manager for Short Interval Control
MineRP WorkManager extends the short-term plan done in MineRP Planner (EPS) into the shift.
Purpose-built for Short Interval Control (SIC), it deals with the immediate scheduling of work, scheduled in given workplaces and against appropriate resources.
MineRP WorkManager is fully integrated with IoT and other production control platforms such as ERP systems and Fleet Management Systems to allow automated updating of progress on scheduled tasks, both in MineRP WorkManager itself, and backward into the short-Term Plan.
