Scenario Overview – 1


      Purpose and Benefits:

           Purpose
              This scenario covers the mining and processing of copper ore. Two main operational
               processes are represented, primary product mining to produce ROM coarse ore for crusher
               feed and crushing to product fine copper ore for subsequent refining.
               It can be also used to describe the process in raw material extraction in building material
               industries, e.g. in the cement industries where wheel loaders and dumper trucks transport the
               raw materials to the crushing installations, where the rock is broken down to roughly the size.

           Benefits
              PI sheet provides a user friendly interface that allows production operators to enter data in a
               customized manner. The same data could be updated automatically.
              A production batch is created for the process order, which allows quality characteristics
               (assays) to be recorded in the system. This batch represents the quantity and quality of the
               crushed copper ore for the time period specified by the process order. The batch
               characteristics for the stockpile batch are used to calculate the value of the stockpile based on
               copper content .
              PM measurement point is integrated, truck related KPI is stored in the created measurement
               documents.

           Key process flows covered
              Create a Process Order for Mining (Crushing) Copper Ore
              Control Recipe Monitor
              Maintain Production Data Using PI Sheet
              Process the Entered Production Data

Scenario Overview – 3


      Detailed Process Description:

        Mining Copper Ore

        The mine production planner creates a process order for loading and
        hauling of ore in an open pit mine. The hauled quantity as well as some
        truck related KPIs like fuel consumptions or operating hours will be
        confirmed on a PI Sheet by the operation supervisor. The mined ore then is
        posted into inventory as a batch. The truck related KPIs will be stored in a
        measuring document.

        Crushing Copper Ore

        The next step includes the crushing of the mined ore to fine ore. The
        process operator records the quantities as well as its quality characteristics
        for copper-, arsenic-, sulphur-, gold- and moisture-content on an easy entry
        PI-Sheet. The crushed copper is moved as a separate batch to the
        stockpile. Valuation can now be done for the copper ore.
