Often project lifecycle models compiled by our expertise require updating with the Clients latest data. A typical example would be the project lifecycle model of an annual plan as a follow-up to the previous one compiled by Tacmin. In this regard and where required by the Client, the models will be updated and maintained by Tacmin.

A typical project lifecycle model that represents the Clients budget forecast, comprise of simulating the primary cost categories with Project Management Software which upon analysis by our mining expertise, is enhanced to contain an in-depth makeup / breakdown using first principal cost modelling but based upon the Clients resources and mine site conditions.

More often than not production schedules produced by typical scheduling software, need to be verified for mineability to ensure that the equipment employed at historical KPI’s is indeed capable of delivering the scheduled productions. Such analysis will also highlight the risks and areas  associated with the shortcomings as well as Tacmin’s advice to prevent failure to comply.

A typical project lifecycle model compiled by our expertise comprise of extensive detail of shift roster operating hours, resource usage as well as associated cost component utilisation and breakdowns. Tacmin’s what-if build-in functionally with Project Management Software is unlimited and total impact on the project take seconds to analyse during changed circumstances.

The Client’s mine design and associated production schedule and plan are totally integrated with Tacmin’s mine project lifecycle models and as such any deviation from mine plan will immediately be identified and flagged in the project lifecycle model.
