How Does It All Work?
ABC Gold Mine runs with 25 130 MT haul trucks and three Hitachi EX5500 shovels.
The new manager needs to maximize productivity, increase safety, lower operating costs. He orders Wencomine FMS, plus BenchManager, PitNav, Dynamic Dispatch, and Wenco Learning. Dispatchers drag-and-drop trucks to shovels in Wencomine FMS’s Fleet Control application. Operators receive the same assignments on their onboard computer. Onboard touchscreens switch to PitNav automatically to guide operators as they drive. Shovel operators watch BenchManager guidelines to load trucks with precision. Operators follow onscreen PitNav guidance to the dump. Dispatchers watch haul cycle progress through Fleet Control automatic updates. Dynamic Dispatch sends an automatic, unexpected assignment to trucks. The dispatcher watches carefully, trusting the data-driven algorithm. Operators carry out their onscreen assignments. At the end of shift, the manager receives a PDF report via e-mail. Reports show better outcomes with Dynamic Dispatch. The manager orders more Dynamic Dispatch training for dispatchers. Dispatchers work through Wenco Learning courses to gain a better understanding of Dynamic Dispatch. They test out ideas introduced in Wenco Learning. The manager receives more shift reports, which show increased use of Dynamic Dispatch and improved production. He writes a report to ABC Gold executives, showing the mine’s improved function.
