Abstract [en]

The mining industry has recognized the need for streamlining the production using modern process control systems. In this thesis, a graphical user interface has been designed that gives the mine operator an improved overview of the physical mine, its production and involved resources compared to current user interfaces.

A conceptual demonstrator was developed that implements essential features, including a traditional process view showing production points and ore movement, an enhanced Gantt chart and a geographical mine view using a visualization technique for 3D to 2D mapping. In depth individual research has also been conducted, focusing on Gantt charts adapted for continuous mining processes and a design process reflection that discusses the diffculties faced by university students in real work environments and suggestions for overcoming them.
