Mobile Equipment Life Cycle Costing is a practical guide for managing the economic life of a mining truck fleet. It covers key financial, commercial and physical aspects of truck management and explains specific methods for acquiring and operating these vehicles to full advantage.
The course includes three sections—Introduction, Life Cycle Cost Analysis, and Optimization. It is structured to support a vigorous discounted cash flow analysis that embraces realistic estimates for the key operating and maintenance variables associated with running haul trucks, and discusses options for improving overall truck performance and productivity.
The objective is to provide an analytic framework that enables readers to impartially assess haul truck investments by using reliable financial modeling and sensitivity analysis. The life cycle model should be functional as a baseline for formal equipment planning and management and for measuring the performance of the haul truck fleet during its useful life.
People who will benefit from this course include purchasing, maintenance, engineering and production managers from mining companies that operate fleets of large haul trucks.
This course is presented as 16 viewing sessions, averaging approximately 30 minutes viewing duration each, plus four interactive reviews that confirm the viewer's achievement of learning objectives. The total duration of the course is approximately seven hours.
Clients include leading mines, mining equipment manufacturers and suppliers, as well as fleet operators in other industries that require robust equipment budgets, resource estimates and maintenance strategy evaluations.
