QSO Expert Support – Expansion and Optimization of Quarry Planning Software
QSO Expert is a graphic-oriented software originally developed and applied to quarry planning tasks by Holcim, one of the world’s leading suppliers of cement and aggregates.
Description of Project:
For more than ten years, ÅF has supported Holcim in the continuous development of the software, with a focus on user friendliness, performance optimization and its capability to handle increasingly complex models. In order to enhance the visualization options of QSO Expert, ÅF developed a fully 3D interactive viewer for quarry models. Interfaces were added for the convenient integration of supplementary data or images such as digital terrain models, maps or aerial photographs. The internal code structure was redesigned and modernized in close collaboration with the client in order to increase the performance of the software. This opportunity was also used to implement a completely new GUI. To date, ÅF continues to provide support with respect to software maintenance and further developments.
