MineSched 2019 Refresh 1

Highlights of MineSched 2019 Refresh 1 include:


Support for OMF Version 1 support
This release will read and write the OMF V1 file format. A new file format to seamlessly transfer data between mining software packages.

New ability to use production activities to constrain the start of a development heading
Users can now set rules that require a set production location activity (e.g. backfill) to constrain the start of a development heading for greater control over scheduling.

Import Locations can now split locations by Trisolation name
When a number of Trisolations are grouped under a single Triobject name, they are now split to be treated as separate Mining Locations, saving significant time when naming multiple mining locations.

New Autosave function
Users can now define a set duration between an automated save process, ensuring valuable work is not lost due to unforeseen events.

New ability to change the order of underground and surface mining locations
Up and down arrows have been added to the Underground Locations and the Evaluate Surface Locations tabs to allow the list to be re-ordered.
