Ensuring model perfection

Mining software packages are extremely complicated and technical, and we as mining engineers are only human, which means errors will creep in at some point. Over the years I have learned to appreciate the power of having a second pair of eyes glance over my work, and point out any mistakes. With the model audit/refinement service I check & scrutinise each and every step of the client's model and adjust or refine the steps as needed to set up an efficient, optimised and updated model. The audited/refined model is then transferred back to the client, and the adjustments/refinements/improvements are explained in a comprehensive report.
