In providing the mine with an objective and effective physical and functional testing system whereby the ability of each worker can be tested for their respective inherent work requirements, the Rehabilitation and Functional Assessment Test Battery has been introduced by Anglo Gold Ashanti. The project consist of the planning and implementation of such a system with all the integration functionalities and process mapping required to deliver a complete and successful RFA Test Battery at Sishen Mine.The method of Dynamic and Monte Carlo Simulation were used to determine the expected number of worker visits, enabling the estimation by incorporating the uncertainty and randomness of such processes. After the capacity has been determined, several layout alternatives were developed and based on set criteria, the most applicable and cost effective option were chosen.The project concludes with a Project Execution Plan as directed by Kumba Project Support for internal review and approval.
