Basic Blast Design:

 - Text, DXF import/export
 - Creating blast templates (loading designs, blast patterns,  settings etc)
 - Managing hole types (front row, production, touch coal  etc)

Blasthole Charging:

 - Develop basic loading rules for charging design process  (hole length, diameter, angle, type)
 - Loading rules can have multiple decks, initiators and  displayed graphically
 - Specify one variable deck so rule can be applied to holes  of different lengths
 - Save loading rules as templates for future blast designs
 - Apply loading factors to account for known variations in  blasthole diameter

Non-Electric Initiation Design:

 - Create Exel initiation designs using common surface and  in-hole delays
 - Cord initiation designs
 - Define initiation point(s) and add dummy holes to  simplify tie up
 - Apply auto hook ups to a regular pattern by selecting and  echelon and control row surface delay

EBS Initiation Design:

 - Create initiation designs based on electronic blasting  systems
 - Develop logging plans and upload data from loggers and  blasters
 - Set individual time offsets within and between holes
 - Automate timing by setting common intra and inter row delays
 - Automate timing using timing tools
 - Create logging paths and plans
