The Whittle 10 Step process
All 10 Steps of the Whittle Integrated Strategic Planning process are interrelated, and therefore should be considered simultaneously. With this approach, the mathematical permutations become exponential. However, Prober E technology can resolve and improve even the most complex Enterprise Optimisation models.
Using the same data, the same constraints and with the same objectives Whittle Integrated Strategic Planning = a better optimisation.
The information required for all 10 Steps usually exists within a mining project or operation. Often, the data resides in separate specialised systems (geo-statistics, geo-technical, mining operation systems, metallurgical simulation systems, logistics simulations, commercial models and financial models). The Enterprise Optimisation model encompasses all of these subjects in a single integrated model, with an optimisation engine (Prober E). This has the power to determine the right combination of all the variables to maximise the economic value created by the complete system.
