Abstract
This report is mainly concerned with the modification and development of a user's manual for an open pit materials handling simulator, developed for the Bureau of Mines. Model modifications included the introduction of a free-format input, the application of a weibull random generator, facilities to stochastically simulate shovel-dragline operations, and routines to increase the flexibility in making truck assignments. At the same time, core storage requirements and execution times were minimized and all conventions were removed to allow operation on different computing systems.
