Leading provider of enterprise software for supply and demand optimisation and predictive modelling, SolveIT Software
has been contracted by Roy Hill Iron Ore (RHIO) for the provision of demand chain simulation services.
SolveIT Software’s APS and SCNO applications will be configured for simulating the Roy Hill operations and associated outbound supply chain including mine, rail and port.
SolveIT Software’s integrated application suite and consulting services will combine to generate robust simulations under a range of assumptions to confirm feasibility and throughput projections over the early and aggressive ramp-up periods for the demand chain.
Mr Mike Lomman, General Manager, Demand Chain for Roy Hill explained that SolveIT Software was selected for the simulation of the Roy Hill Iron Ore demand chain because of their experience in optimising complex and dynamic logistics processes as well as proven capability in multi-objective, non-linear model creation for global mining value chains.
According to Mr Lomman, the Roy Hill operation is progressing rapidly towards the delivery of one of the world’s most efficient and advanced integrated operations wherein they are developing sophisticated remote operations and autonomy operating models to help drive efficiencies and scalability required to maximise the value of the asset.
Mr James Balzary, Director of Natural Resources for SolveIT Software comments that adding value to an organisation early in its lifecycle and ensuring that the technology used transitions from feasibility through to operations is a key strategy of the company. Their ability to simulate prior to first ore production and then migrate the same simulation and optimisation model to production planning and scheduling use is being very well received by the mining industry.
