Tactical Mine Planning - Great Results with Proven Technology

The world’s most advanced tactical mine planner for surface and underground mines of all sizes and types, GEOVIA MineSched provides scheduling to improve productivity and profits beyond what’s possible with manual scheduling.

Intuitive, rapid setup and guided workflows take the complexity out of tactical mine planning, putting real decision-making power back in the hands of engineers and mining operations. 

MineSched produces long and short-term schedules that meet capacity and material quality targets.

Schedule from pre-created block, grid, and polygon models that originate from many different mine planning systems, including GEOVIA Surpac™ and other industry geology and mine planning products.

With target-driven automated tactical planning, there’s no need to manually adjust schedules with Gantt charts or spreadsheets.

MineSched creates schedules that improve mine site operational productivity and profitability.
