Title: NETWORK PLANNING METHOD AND MINE PLANNING METHOD
Abstract:
A method is described, consisting in the fusion of two known processes that are frequently used in the mining industry: mine planning and network planning. The fusion of these two processes can reduce operation costs of a mine (1), (4), in that it allows a cheaper wireless network to be installed with improved quality and coverage which meet more satisfactorily the operational requirements of the mine (1), (4).
