The international provider of market intelligence has acknowledged Polymathian again as a major player in the mine planning and scheduling software sector. This year Polymathian was named in all three mine planning and scheduling categories: midterm/short-term planning and scheduling, long-term planning and scheduling, and short interval control.
Each year IDC publishes the IDC MarketScape, which investigates the competitive landscape for vendor solutions that serve the mining sector. The research analysis provides technology buyers with a transparent foundation to independently compare the strengths and weaknesses of potential vendors.
"Polymathian's inclusion this year in all three mine planning and scheduling categories is a direct reflection of the investment made to enhance our mining software products. Both BOLT and ORB expanded their operational features to solve more challenging and complex planning and scheduling problems", said Polymathian co-founder and product leader Steven Donaldson.
Resource industry leaders like OZ Minerals, Newcrest, Oyu Tolgoi and Rio Tinto use ORB to increase profits, reduce costs and maximise efficiency from strategic planning to real-time dispatch. "The industry investment in ORB has enabled it to become the world's first and most advanced short interval control system for near real-time optimisation of mine planning and scheduling activities", continued Steven.
