How mining companies identify bottlenecks & leverage points via mining optimisation with Whittle Consulting

 

As the leading mining consultants, Whittle Consulting has identified the top 15 Objectives and Outcomes that drive our clients to implement mining optimisation generally, and Whittle Integrated Strategic Mine Planning, in particular. One of these objectives is to identify the bottlenecks and leverage points within their mining project or operation. Let’s explore this objective in detail.

11. Identify bottlenecks & leverage points
Objectives:
  • Identify bottlenecks
  • Identify leverage points

Outcomes:

Whittle Consulting utilises Theory of Constraints in a strategic context to identify the bottlenecks within open pit mines and underground mines, taking the consequences of them right back to the orebody. This results in a very different view of where value is spatially. This approach has a substantial effect on mine planning generally. This includes overall mine design and operating strategy, (such as cut-off grade) over the life of the operation.

Increasing the performance of the bottleneck in the system improves the performance of the whole system. This approach provides substantial leverage for improving business performance and overall mine valuation.
