Proposed Solutions to the Tripper Car Positioning Problem

Felipe Novaes Caldas, Alexandre Xavier Martins

Abstract

The trippers are equipments often found in mineral processing plants. Their role is to distribute ore coming from past stages of process in a silo with several hoppers. Positioning trippers is a scheduling problem defined by position determination of the equipment through the bins and along time. The system silo-tripper was modeled as a combinatorial linear optimization program aiming to get the optimal tripper positioning. Two paradigms were used to find out an exact solution: mixed integer linear programming and dynamic programming.
