This IDC MarketScape, as part of IDC's mine planning and scheduling MarketScape series, assesses the capabilities and strategies of short interval control (SIC) mine scheduling software vendors utilized in the mining industry to enable mining operations. These mining industry players are optimizing their mobile assets and personnel while adhering to targets set by long-term mine plans and schedules. The tools optimize the schedule based on maintenance requirements, staffing changes, and equipment available at the time of schedule release. The software can utilize Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and cloud for optimization and data sharing.

"Ensuring your mining operational assets, including your mobile equipment and personnel that is being utilized optimally at all times, can drastically improve your operational and safety performance," says Ben Kirkwood, senior research manager, worldwide mining, IDC Energy Insights. "Ingesting data from training systems, maintenance systems, and human resource (HR) systems allows you to know what assets are available and when can they be utilized. Combining this information with real-time data enables you to navigate interruptions as they occur and provides you with the insight to be able to make operational changes where and when required to adhere with production targets," he adds.
