Computerised model for materials handling in a large mineral processing based organization

Verma, Amit (1996) Computerised model for materials handling in a large mineral processing based organization. In: Proceedings of the National Seminar on Computer Applications in Materials & Metallurgical Engineering, Dec. 10-11, 1996, NML, Jamshedpur.



Integrated Information Technology applications related to Materials Handling have been advocated for a long time. For many large organizations, the challenges have been to monitor material flow, traceability of material, accurate weighment and ensuring that the transportation of the material is as per schedule and at optimum cost. It is important that the Suppliers/Transporters payments are to be made timely. The objective of the paper is to address the above mentioned issues in this area on how a computer-ised model implemented over a Wide Network can improve productivity. The challenges lie in improving operations involving diversified users spread over large areas, oper-ating on machines with different configurations, affecting the overall system objectives. The system will be useful in standardisation of operations, having information on material flow at finger tips and automatic recording of weighment apart from generating various MIS reports for production Planning/ Scheduling. It will help users in taking on-line decisions. The System will also aid in red-ucing bill processing cycle time thus leading to financial benefits and better organizational image. The above model with minor refinement can be used in any Mineral Process-ing Organization.
