Developing the strategy of technological refurbishing of open pits

K.Yu. Anistratov

The article describes the principles and order of steps in the formation of the structure of integrated mechanization at the stage of open-pit technological refurbishing on the basis of the method developed by the author. The method is based on the assumption that the grounding of the integrated mechanization structure and the dynamics of its further progress is made subject to the variation of natural and technological conditions of deposit development, as well as performance and economics of every mine machine or equipment, which form the structure of machinery fleets in conformity with their life cycles in the course of service life called the “machine life”, and accepted maintenance procedures based on the criterion of maximum discounted profit or minimum discounted total operation, maintenance and repair service and ownership costs.
