BlendOpt.CHPP is a holistic strategy optimisation tool that can model a variety of processing plant flow networks and processing constraints.

For instance, it can improve wash vs bypass decisions as well as the density cut-point for dense medium cyclones while accounting for washability, feed blend requirements, sales targets, and downstream/upstream inventories.

In addition to strategy optimisation, BlendOpt.CHPP supports the detailed scheduling of daily campaigns.
