New and Updated Features Included in Whittle 4.7

Multi-mine Simultaneous Optimization (Advanced SIMO) – New Feature for Purchase

  • Support multiple pits and pushbacks, and schedule them simultaneously whilst completing a cut-off grade, stockpile and blending optimization. 

Simultaneous Optimization (SIMO)

  • Support the processing space, and multiple (up to 30) processing paths, to optimize the schedule, the cut-off and cut-overs between the various paths and stockpiles, and decrease the amount of waste.
  • Synchronize the mining optimization and the processing optimization to improve NPV.
  • The menu option supports Microsoft® Excel to easily view a large number of detailed reports. 
  • Significant performance improvements with the introduction of the COIN-OR Linear Programming (LP) engine.
  • For a multi-mine block model, the Schedule tab includes mine information so you can specify whether a mine is to be included, and/or define the pushbacks for each mine used in SIMO.
  • On the Advanced Optimization Controls form (in the inhibit pushback table), you can see the pushbacks to which the mine belongs. 
  • When creating a new pushback definition in a single or multi-mine scenario, you can set the min/max lead, and the max benches, per period using Pushback Definition Creation form. 
  • An unlimited number of constraints and variables may be used in a blend optimization in order to optimize a broader range of blend scenarios. 

Limitless Expressions

  • For those wishing to define and report on values using complex expressions, there are no limits to the number of expressions supported.

Technology Upgrade

  • Microsoft® Windows 10 64 bit, Microsoft Office 2013 & 2016 supported for improved performance and reliability.
