Scheduling of underground mining operations

Mutual constraints and interdependencies make scheduling in underground mines difficult, making many mathematical optimization methods inefficient. The article discusses an approach to scheduling underground mining operations based on maintaining work-in-progress buffers and iterative adjustment of the plan using a simulation model. The key advantage of the proposed approach is the ability to consider the probabilistic factors inherent in the real world.
