Our mining engineering products provide a suite of design, scheduling, optimisation and execution solutions that cover multiple planning horizons from strategic planning through to operations.
Pit Optimisation, Pushback Design & Strategic Scheduling
Complete strategic open pit mine planning system
The physical design and production schedule of a mine are inextricably linked. Studio NPVS is unique in the mining industry as the only strategic mine planning system that optimises both of these elements in the search for maximum NPV. As a complete strategic open pit mine planning system – Studio NPVS has functionality spanning data preparation, pit optimisation, pushback generation, cut-off grade optimisation, scheduling, haulage analysis and stockpile management. In addition, the Studio NPVS family of products have the full power of a general mining package delivered by Datamine Studio’s core platform. The advanced system caters for alternative techniques beyond NPV for pit optimisation to take account of material blending requirements, or to maximise mine life. The innovative pushback generator delivers the most practical pushbacks of any competing product and the scheduling capability includes optimisation techniques that look ahead to the entire life of the mine as opposed to considering just one period at a time.

Strategic Mine Schedule Optimisation
Best-in-class mine schedule optimization software
Minemax Scheduler is a best-in-class mine schedule optimization software that jointly optimizes mine schedules and associated mining, processing and transport infrastructure to deliver optimal strategic mine plans that meet all project constraints. With Minemax Scheduler, you can model all aspects of your mine schedule at once, including trucking, waste dump sequence, cut-off and cut-over grades, material destinations, leach processing, and CAPEX to achieve maximum value for your business.
Detailed Open Pit Mine Planning
Generate detailed plans to follow your strategic plan.
Tempo is an easy-to-use solution to quickly develop practical open pit mine schedules that satisfy mining, processing and trucking constraints and that align with strategic plans. Tempo‘s intuitive workflow make the schedule setup simple and straightforward. With its choice of powerful scheduling engines, Tempo is a highly functional tool for detailed mine planning that addresses real challenges facing mine planners in their operations. To create a detailed schedule in Tempo, mine planners can bring in polygons, regularized block models or translate blocks into bench polygons. They can also use outputs from strategic scheduling software like Minemax Scheduler to guide their detailed planning.
Open Pit Design & Scheduling
Superior open pit design & scheduling system
Studio OP is a complete design and scheduling product for short– and medium-term planning of open pit mines. Packed with functionality for automated reserve generation, pit design and scheduling, Studio OP makes generating and comparing alternative mine plans a breeze. Studio OP uses sophisticated algorithms and data management throughout. Its innovative rules-based automated design sets a new standard for designing open pits and dramatically increases the number of alternative designs and layouts that can be considered. When it comes to scheduling with minimal manual intervention, Studio OP’s Auto Scheduler can be used to produce practically achievable schedules with desired financial outcomes, product blend specifications and realistic equipment movement. Schedules can be optionally exported to EPS for communication, reporting or further manipulation with its intuitive Gantt chart interface. Whether you have responsibility for producing medium-term plans and budgets or detailed short term operational schedules, Studio OP can help achieve the best possible outcomes for your organisation.
Comprehensive Underground Toolkit
Design, schedule & optimisation
Leading the way for integrated underground design and scheduling – Studio UG is the comprehensive toolkit that has a unique, single-step process to generate all scheduled activities from source data in seconds. Data preparation is completely automated to achieve an extremely efficient and robust system for delivering underground design data to your scheduling environment. Mine standards are incorporated in templates, saving you time, whilst multiple users can work on portions of the mine simultaneously, eliminating the potential for doubling up of work or unnecessary redundancies. It can robustly handle larger datasets, multiple synchronised views and full block model display including slices, blocks and point cloud representations. Data processing can now be completed in one step as Studio UG processes all the data types with a single click. New sequence rules created using attributes deliver an additional method to generate sequence links, and the integrated scheduling features mean a schedule can be rapidly updated with design changes without any loss of previous manual interventions within the schedule.
