Mining companies generally have a long list of investment options, including expansions, acquisitions, exploration and new technologies.
Most investment options generate obvious local improvements, but may have detrimental effects downstream. Others may have compounding benefits. The full effect of an investment option won’t be identified without a complete and integrated view of the business as a whole.
Whittle Enterprise Optimisation models simultaneously optimise the interconnections across the business. This enables quantification of the full effect that the investment combinations will have on the value generated by the whole system. The result is the proper ranking and prioritisation of investment decisions.
