The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the capabilities of an analytical model developed to calculate the production capacity and the costs of various combinations of coal-mining machinery. The model matches the numbers of each type of machine resulting in the least cost machine combination. First, a conceptual framework for cost calculations and machine matching is developed and illustrated. Next the costs of operating various loader-truck combinations at a given level of production are evaluated.
