# Schedule Optimization

# 1. Consider your real production

In the early years of the project you will find many concerns and the most value in terms of NPV. Knowing that, we decide to consider a **10-year surface to optimize the first 5 years**. By a logical assumption, as the surface used corresponds to a decade, it will contain the interval from the 1st to 5th period and represents a lot more mass. However, this simple input can restrict the space where the algorithm has to find a solution, which **could reduce the run-time **and **help it to deliver better results** respecting the set of constraints given.

Example:

Timeframe: Years (1).

Processing capacity: 10 Mt per year.

Total movement: 40 Mt per year.

Maximum of 4,500 processing hours per year.

Vertical rate of advance as 150m per year.

Minimum Mining (50 m) and Bottom(100 m) width.
