Dassault Systèmes recently announced the release of the latest version of its strategic mine planning software GEOVIA Whittle. The company says that the Whittle 4.6 version helps users add more economic value to projects and saves time by streamlining mining processes.
With a 64-bit version and Windows 8.1 support, Whittle 4.6 handles large datasets, optimizes operations processes and runs bigger models, making this version of Whittle more efficient to use.
Whittle 4.6 highlights include:
- 64 Bit Modern Processing enables the handling of large datasets, extending the limit of files sizes, for more efficient processing of data in addition to increased scheduling accuracy as result of improved algorithmic decisions.
- A new Block Model Import Wizard provides a simplified workflow for exporting files from GEOVIA Surpac and other GMPs increasing accuracy and precision with less data manipulation, and saves time by importing multiple surfaces from a single DTM, DWG or DXF file.
- Improved floating point arithmetic provides more accurate binning by grade range for a more positive impact on NPV.
As part of Dassault Systèmes, GEOVIA applications lead the way in delivering tomorrow's innovations in modelling and simulation for mining and is home to world-renowned solutions including Surpac, GEMS, Minex, Whittle, MineSched, PCBC, Hub and InSite.
