Title

Selection of Mining Machinery Based on Mechanical Delay Statistics: An Application of Goal Programming to Capital Budgeting

Abstract

This paper presents an application of goal programming (GP) to major mining machinery purchases based on historical operating data on mechanical downtime and production. The gp technique, an extension of integer programming, is used to maximize an objective function comprised of deviations away from management-preferred financial goals. Different capital budgeting techniques are used to evaluate capital proposals and the results are combined and weighted in a maximization of profits.
