In July, Minemax introduced Minemax Scheduler 7 with Financial Constraints, closing the gap between strategic mine planning and corporate finance. This is a new game-changing innovation that helps you deliver a more realistic strategic mine plan, in the context of your company’s financial situation.
To help you incorporate this new concept into your strategic mine planning, here is a little recap of key points and useful resources for common financial situations you might be facing.
What are financial constraints in Minemax Scheduler?
They represent a new class of constraints that allows you to quickly and efficiently deliver NPV optimal strategic mine plans that satisfy a range of financial constraints such as cashflow requirements, debt-repayment schedule and capital expenditure budgets.
