Case StudyIron ore production scheduling to improve product quality
Review articleOpen access

AbstractIron ore quality depends upon successive shipments being uniform in composition, not only in iron but also in several other minerals. The production process involves several stages of scheduling, from the mine face, through railing, stockpiling and ship loading. At each of these stages there is potential to improve the composition uniformity through appropriate scheduling procedures. This paper discusses a variety of algorithms and simulation models developed to aid these scheduling decisions.
