ABB Ability™ Operations Management System for mining
integrates two tools into the same digital platform: Short Interval Control and the Closed Loop Scheduler.
Short Interval Control
allows mine operators to monitor and review operational plans and performance based on targets, metrics and KPIs. Variances can be analyzed and mitigated in real time during a shift for immediate corrective action or they may be reviewed and reported upon at the end of shift.
The Closed Loop Scheduler
combines high-level planning with low-level control. The short-term planner achieves new levels of production scheduling efficiency and can maximize production throughout blast cycles, haulage, crushing, ore processing and transport. The mine operator then acts as a dispatcher, optimizing resource usage in real time and following the production plan more effectively.
