CorePlan

Improve operational efficiency and safety with integrated and robust planning and control

What is CorePlan?

The first version of CorePlan was developed in 2015 in response to an absence of mature tools for short-term planning in underground mining. Managing the execution of operational plans on a day-to-day basis was constrained by rudimentary tools such as spreadsheets, whiteboards and paper. CorePlan has evolved over the last five years through prototyping, research and development, and input from operational managers and frontline workers.

Benefits

Improved productivity –
The integrated planning process enables operational de-bottlenecking and manages planned vs actual to drive delivery and continuous improvement  

– Reduction in safety risk
Tasks are undertaken in a planned manner informed by work group interactions, ventilation utilisation and resource capability and availability.
