Partnership to enable value chain optimisation and simulation

March 23rd, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Petra Data Science MD Penny Stewart and Maptek MD Peter Johnson formalise the new partnership.

Maptek and Petra Data Science have established a partnership which will enable seamless value chain optimisation and simulation from resource models through to metal produced. Mining companies will be able to use their historical performance and resource metadata for dynamic optimisation. The integrated technology offerings of the two companies cover solutions from geological modelling to plant and process optimisation and simulation. The partnership combines deep domain expertise from across the whole value chain and, together the companies offer the industry a practical alternative to the common practice of siloed optimisation. Under the partnership, Maptek Evolution mine schedule optimisation will be dynamically linked to Petra’s latest digital twin performance models including metal produced, grade, quality, recovery and throughput. Dynamic mine scheduling is made possible by bringing together Maptek optimisation engines and Petra’s prediction and simulation algorithms. Maptek BlastLogic blast design optimisation will also benefit from dynamic links to Petra digital twin models for loading, crushing and grinding. In addition, Petra Maxta digital twin blast design simulation will benefit from connection to BlastLogic historical drill and blast design data.
