Module/Feature

Foundation Module iScheduler Module
Open-pit Long-term Scheduling sub-module: Create or import nested pits; Create long-term schedules from nested pits.
Open-pit Mid-to-Short Term Scheduling sub-module: Interactively create short-term bench mining cuts from long-term schedules incorporating precedence constraints; Creates open-pit activities from bench mining cuts.
Underground Scheduling sub-module: Interactively create and edit polyline dev-activities from design center-lines, mesh dev-activities from mesh development accesses, stope activities from stope designs, stope-slice activities from stopes and excavation activities from underground excavations; Create and edit internal dependencies within an activity group and external dependencies between activity groups.
Mining Task Generation: Create and schedule non-3D activity (logical) tasks.
Resource Management: Create resources and assign them to mining activities or tasks; Level resources that are assigned to activities or tasks.
User-controled Schedule types: Use activity-level property schedulability to control what schedule to create.  
Gantt Chart sub-module: Create Gantt-Charts, Resource Charts or Network Diagrams from mining activities and tasks.  
Schedule Animation: Play, pause, resume, fast forward and backward long, medium or short-term schedules.  
X-Section sub-module: Create and edit axis-aligned and non-axis aligned cross sections
Wireframing & Surface sub-module: Create DA (dynamic anisotropy) surfaces either manually or automatically from a wireframe; Create wireframes from cross sectional polylines; Create 2.5D gridded surfaces; Create gridded seam solids; Create 2.5D TIN surfaces; Mesh repairing tools including hole filling and mesh solidification.
Topography sub-module: Create gridded topographical surface or contours from drill hole collars, block models and/or an imported 2.5D mesh.
