Without the right software tools focused on underground design and with no integration with the block model, building a mine design and schedule is an unenviable task. Manual and spreadsheet calculations are time-consuming, prone to error, and inefficient. Scheduling decisions can be based on inaccurate data.
HxGN MinePlan Engineering UG Foundation is a software package that provides engineers with the right tools for the job: underground CAD functionality and an integrated reserves’ calculation engine. The package features integration with the block model and reserves engine, the ability to design drifts, crosscuts, ramps and stopes, and a scheduling tool for building schedules, routing material and reporting reserves. Powerful and rapid Boolean engines quickly process data and point cloud visualization features in the same application.
Engineers can build mine designs and schedules quicker and save time accurately reporting reserves while interacting with the block model. There's less time and less risk involved with data transfers plus the benefits the streamlined efficiencies of being part of a general mine planning package. Expect greater agility when building and adjusting schedules with MinePlan Engineering UG Foundation.
