Can scheduling software help me quickly resolve disruptions?
No matter how well you run your mines, inevitably delays happen. These could be due to equipment breaking down, employees being ill or injured, or supplies not arriving on time. Unfortunately, even small delays can wreak havoc on productivity, and the biggest problem you run into with disruptions aren’t the disruptions themselves, it’s not being prepared with the tools and technology you need to quickly resolve the issue.
So, how can you address disruptions and get your mining operation back on track?
The answer is Actenum DSO/Mine.

Update schedules in real-time to ensure ongoing productivity
When unplanned changes occur rescheduling must be done rapidly to get operations back on track. Designed to deal with all types of real-world changes, Actenum’s AI-powered mining scheduling software can quickly update schedules in real-time. DSO/Mine ensures the right resources, assets, and people are always in the right place at the right time. It provides a smooth, rapid, and reliable mechanism to help you manage disruptions, and reduce the possibility of putting profits at risk as operational circumstances change.
Create and evaluate multiple “What if” schedule alternatives
With DSO/Mine’s scenario capability, you always know what to do in any situation. It allows you to create and evaluate multiple “What if?” schedule alternatives that you can use to assess what would happen after reworking a schedule to address a disruption. You can rapidly determine the benefits of changes that you may be able to make in the operational environment, such as using additional equipment, delaying, or bringing forward other activities, employing a different mix of resources, and so on.
Overcome the limitations of manual scheduling and enhance your productivity
Using a general-purpose scheduling tool is difficult, time-consuming, and error prone, because you have to do a great deal of manual work. In addition, it is not effective because of frequent changes in your operational environment due to disruptions and unplanned events. DSO/Mine helps you proactively address these challenges by doing the “heavy-lifting” for you. It will perform the initial schedule creation by searching the set of activities, resources, sequencing/timing combinations, and preferences/policy requirements to create a schedule in far less time than using a manual approach. What might take you days or weeks to complete manually is done in minutes with Actenum DSO/Mine.
