Dynamic Mill Simulator


The Market: The Mill Process Simulator is a unique simulator that will benefit not only the Mining Mill Operations Program, but all mill operator programs.


The Need: Mills are more than just one core process, and employer built solutions are not available to those seeking to enter the occupation. Communication with industry employers has revealed that a mill process simulator that links some of the critical processes (across multiple vendors) in a single software will be an excellent training tool for a mill operator program, as operators can learn about the impacts of their control decisions across different processes. Additionally, mines can use the tool to improve operator skills without impacting actual operations. Developing a mill process simulator will not only help individuals entering the profession, but will also help employed workers enhance their skills, knowledge, and wages.
