Case Type: Logistics

Integrated Planning Logistics Model

Implemented a predictive simulation model that determined the logistics requirements for a copper smelter every week. The simulation integrated production plans and maintenance schedules at the smelter with arrival and departure times for the vessels at the port to work out the road and rail logistics requirements.

Working Capital Prediction Model

Configured a model to dynamically simulate the flow of concentrate from the client’s mines in Western Australia, through to the processing plants in China factoring in the multiple modes of transport along the way. The model determined the working capital requirements across the value chain.
