Improvement of methodical framework for autonomous scheduling of mining operations during underground mine design and planning

In the modern world, digitalization is becoming a determining factor of success in the competitiveness of mining enterprises. This is primarily due to the need to constantly increase their productivity and increase operational superiority. It is obvious that modern computer technologies can open up a whole range of new opportunities for achieving the goals of digitalization mining production. World-renowned mining companies are investing heavily in the application and development of their IT infrastructure and the latest technologies in order to increase production automation, transition to unpopulated mining and reduce costs. One of the most promising areas is the use of computer technologies for scheduling mining operations. The algorithm for computer-aided design of the mining development schedule in GGIS is proposed, and the principles of its formation are described in this article. It is shown that the application of this algorithm allows you to get a dynamic calendar plan for the development of mining operations and planning reports in automatic mode, taking into account the necessary quantitative and qualitative characteristics. Also, by authors the necessity of developing an expert system to improve the quality of determining promising areas of mining development is justified and its structure is formed. This expert system is based on the rules necessary for setting the optimal order of mining excavation chambers, preparatory workings, security pillars and other objects that are necessary for drawing up a calendar plan for the development of mining operations. It is also based on the idea to record, formalize and use the knowledge and skills of a group experts from the geological, technical and surveying services of a mining enterprise.

Keywords: ore deposit, frameworks design of technological units, forecasting and estimation of reserves, mining and geological information systems, design of the mining development schedule, data reliability, design decision making, 3D-modeling, expert system for mining development’s determining promising areas.
