Maptek Evolution produces short, medium, long term and strategic life of mine schedules alongside practical production plans. It enables you to maximise the value of your deposit without compromising operations and without simplifying data.
The Maptek enterprise level scheduling solution optimises NPV using cut-off grade techniques, a proven method for maximising project value. Evolution also optimises the haulage fleet to deliver cost savings early in the schedule.
Your operation will benefit from multiple solutions run in parallel using high performance cloud computing, with solutions ‘learning’ from each other to continually generate new, better solutions that solve real world problems.
Evolution delivers a seamless workflow from strategic to short term scheduling using a single data source. Rapidly iterate scenarios that consider multiple objectives such as cut-off grade, production schedules, dynamic route allocation, haulage cycle times, waste dump allocation, fuel burn and productivity to generate a final optimised schedule.
Haulage is considered as part of an integrated mine planning - scheduling process, and further cost savings can be achieved with waste dump optimisation. Flow-on benefits include deferred capital expenditure, minimised clearance costs, and improved waste planning. An efficient rehabilitation stage means environmental bonds can be returned sooner.
Customers access Evolution via software-as-a-service. Users run Evolution locally on a notebook or desktop computer to import data, set up and analyse schedules and export models and scheduling files. Processing of schedules is completed via a secure hybrid cloud system.
Evolution Strategy is a strategic mine planning and optimisation tool for running scenarios based on cut-off grade optimisation and sequencing to maximise NPV.
Evolution Origin generates detailed scheduling scenarios from life-of-mine to short term planning horizons; integration with Vulcan closes the gap between design and scheduling.
Evolution Epoch is a dedicated short term planning tool that allows users to manage multiple mining activities, tasks and equipment, and apply different types of dependencies.
Evolution Phase provides integrated and automated tools to manipulate optimal shells developed in pit optimisation.
Evolution Stratigraphic Transform allows operations with stratigraphic deposits to calculate coal and waste quantities and qualities as they change at every stage of the mining process.
