iScheduler Open Pit

Integrated Life-Of-Mine and Production Scheduler for Open-pit Mines

From nested pits to Gantt Charts, GeoMine iScheduler-OP is an integrated Life-of-Mine (LOM) and production scheduler for open-pit mines. As a LOM scheduler, it schedules a set of nested pits based on geometric, operational and user-defined constraints. As a production scheduler, it also features a fully interactive 3D activity and dependency editor, activity and resource Gantt Charts, a PERT chart and a Network Diagram, as well as a Resource Leveling algorithm. iScheduler-OP is purposely built for sequencing and scheduling various kinds of mining activities and resources for short to long-term planning of open pit mines. Activities and dependencies can be generated automatically or manually through its powerful interactive Activity and Dependency Editor that supports unlimited undo/redo.


iScheduler-OP also offers an unique and powerful feature called Activity Specialization that allows the mine planners to turn their long or mid-term open-pit activities into short term ones or to mix and match long/mid-term activities with short-term activities in a single schedule.

iScheduler-OP Key Benefits

iScheduler-OP Feature List

Create long-term production schedules from nested pits or pit designs. Optionally use optimal cut-off grade and production rate policies created by OptimCut.

Interactively create short-term bench mining cuts from long-term schedules incorporating precedence constraints; Creates open-pit activities from bench mining cuts; Creates activities from Margin Ranks for gridded seams.

Create and schedule non-3D activity (logical) tasks.

Create resources and assign them to mining activities or tasks; Level resources that are assigned to activities or tasks.

Turn long or mid term schedules to short-term (daily or weekly) schedules with user defined activities;

Mix and match long or mid-term open-pit activities with short-term activities in a single production schedule 

Create Gantt-Charts, Resource Charts or Network Diagrams from mining activities and tasks.
