For vertically integrated producers who own and operate the entire supply chain
Maximise system throughput
Simultaneously optimise inbound and outbound operations
Global optimisation
Simultaneously minimise demurrage, maximise throughput and terminal asset utilisation
Maintenance scheduling
Schedule rail maintenance with inbound/outbound operations to maximise throughput
Maximise asset utilisation
Make the most efficient use of track assets and available rail units in all fleets
Dynamic Scheduling
Simultaneously schedule inbound and outbound operations for bulk haulage rail networks comprising multiple load points, fleets and terminals with knowledge and control of product grade and volumes
Improve Maintenance Planning
Evaluate the impacts of different maintenance profiles (production facility, load point, rail unit, track, dump station, stacker, reclaimer, ship loader) on system throughput
Dynamic Scenario Testing
Examine the impacts on system throughput of:
  • Fleet Mix Changes
  • Terminal Demand Changes
  • Terminal Operating Procedures
  • Load Point Upgrades
  • Track Network Upgrades
  • Terminal Upgrades
