The operation of an underground mine site requires the execution of multiple tasks and involve many human and material resources. The execution of these tasks is then limited by many constraints including the order in which certain task must be done, the limits on availability of resources, congestions in the distribution of resources and many others. Because of this, scheduling the activities in an underground mine is a very complex and demanding task. In most mine, an experienced mine planner must work full time in order to achieve a good and feasible planning. The objective of this project is to create a tool relying on mathematical programming to plan all activities in an underground mine in the best way possible within seconds.
