Simulation modelling of coal stockpiling and logistics for BHP
SMS developed a simulation model of a complex raw coal transportation system to address bottlenecks and inadequate storage. Relatively minor infrastructure upgrades were recommended, avoiding anticipated new stockpiles or other major investment. The model was then available for ongoing use, to support decision making for other proposed projects and upgrades.
Artificial intelligence: The future of environmental monitoring
