This mining optimization problem is an example of a production planning problem. In production planning problems, choices must be made regarding what resources to use to produce what products.
More information on this type of model can be found in example # 7 of the fifth edition of Modeling Building in Mathematical Programming by H. P. Williams on pages 261 – 262 and 310 – 312.
This modeling example is at the intermediate level, where we assume that you know Python and are familiar with the Gurobi Python API. In addition, you should have some knowledge about building mathematical optimization models.
Request a Gurobi Evaluation License or Free Academic License
Modeling examples are coded using the Gurobi Python API in Jupyter Notebook. In order to use the Jupyter Notebooks, you must have a Gurobi License. If you do not have a license, you can request an Evaluation License as a Commercial User or download a free license as an Academic User.
