This research project sets out to determine what requirements should be met by a modern computer-aided information system for planning mine operations, taking mine safety considerations into account. These requirements must be based on a range of mining tasks, such as the carrying out of a plan, rescue operations etc. Consideration must be given to the types of danger and the sources of danger. A number of information systems, data bases and programs are currently in use and particular emphasis was placed on the integration of available data and programs. In planning mining operations it is regularly necessary to recognise dangers. In this context a number of general logical procedures were structured including as an example the procedures for the recognition of danger from inflammable gas. Here the prototype "Mine Plan Management System" proved a useful aid in guaranteeing the completeness of information for use in planning. An assessment of the cost of implementing the information system was attempted.
