About Aegis Analyser
On April 15, 2014 the second module of Aegis called Analyzer was released into the marketplace. “Aegis Analyzer builds upon the paradigm-breaking Aegis Designer, combining never before seen advanced analysis and forecasting tools with an intuitive and powerful interface” states Chris Preston, iRing’s Project Manager.
Aegis Analyzer adds to the already robust forecasting features of Aegis Designer by providing blast recovery revenue forecasts, with an emphasis on dilution and constantly changing marketplace parameters. The unique combination of features allows blast planners to work in concert with transportation and milling departments towards optimization of the entire mine-to-mill process.
Analyzer extends industry accepted blasting models, providing cavity prediction algorithms that leverage the power of 3D graphics computing in a way that has not previously been possible. Analyzer provides an unobtrusive, content-rich interface that integrates seamlessly with Aegis Designer, allowing planners to immediately see the consequences of design decisions. This combination of novel analysis tools and rapid design features of Aegis Designer allows planners to design and thoroughly evaluate several approaches to a problem in less time than was previously required to obtain a single design. Workflows are geared towards rapidly evaluating multiple designs and, ultimately, the arrival at a process-optimal plan.
