How can I increase operational efficiency and
reduce non-productive time?
Mining operations are highly complex and involve a myriad of tasks that must be efficiently coordinated to achieve maximum tonnage. Simply put, there is no time for downtime. Managing the complexity of these operations while meeting all constraints is a challenge that takes advanced scheduling software.
With Actenum’s DSO/Mine, you benefit from an advanced AI-driven automatic scheduling tool that allows you to increase operational efficiency and reduce non-productive time by optimizing all aspects of your mining operations.

Reduce non-productive time (NPT)
Improving productivity is high on the agenda of the mining industry. DSO/Mine features powerful decision optimization support technology and advanced analytics to rapidly identify the optimal schedule and ensure the right resources are in the right place at the right time to improve performance. To reduce NPT, DSO/Mine analyzes all resource assignments and then automatically optimizes your schedule, so your expensive equipment is working and not waiting. As a result, you can maximize equipment usage, avoid costly mistakes, and stay on budget.
Immediately understand the impact of last-minute scheduling changes
Scheduling changes can arise for multiple reasons and at any time. Are there too few employees working a shift? Or too many trucks standing by, idle? Changes to your schedule, especially last-minute ones, can significantly disrupt your operations. By linking your schedule to key metrics, DSO/Mine provides immediate insight into how last-minute schedule changes will impact costs and production goals.
Boost your bottom line
Improving productivity and profits begins with seeing the big picture of your operations and how everything fits together. DSO/Mine allows you to see the big picture by addressing multiple aspects of your mining operations, including core drilling, drill and blast, mucking, load haul dump, dewatering, and other critical activities. You can schedule any type of resource against any type of activity and quickly align the sequence of resources and activities with your business objectives, so you can boost your bottom line.
