MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation consists of three papers; the first is published in European Journal of Operational Research, the second is nearing submission to it Optimization and Engineering, and the third is nearing submission to International Journal of Mining, Reclamation and Environment. These papers apply operations research techniques to open pit mine production scheduling with stockpiling (OPMPS+S). The first paper, "Linear Models for Stockpiling in Open-pit Mine Production Scheduling Problems," reviews existing models to solve OPMPS+S and shows that a nonlinear-integer model provides an ...
