- SHOTPlus™ Variant:
- 6.0.0 and above
- KBA Summary:
- This Knowledge Base Article the difference between the three holes modes in SHOTPlus™, 'Design', 'Updated Design', and 'Actual'.
Blastholes in SHOTPlus™ can be in three different modes depending on measurements recorded against them. These are:
- Updated Design.
Design is the default mode for blastholes when they originally created in, or added to, a SHOTPlus™ file.
Each hole will remain in Design mode until a measurement (e.g. actual length, temperature, diameter, collar location, toe location, wet state, amount of water, strata intercept etc.) is recorded against it.
When a blasthole is in design mode, the hole diagram for a hole will show information related to the design.
An updated design mode indicates that a hole has had a recorded measurement against it.
When loading rules are applied to a blasthole in an updated design mode, they are based upon the measurements recorded against a hole where present, and design information where no measurements have been recorded.
When a blasthole is in Updated Design state, the hole diagram for a hole will show a mixture of design information, where no measurement has been recorded, and hole measurements where recorded. e.g. length, diameter, amount of water.
An actual mode indicates that Actual loading information has been recorded against the blasthole.
When a blasthole is in Actual mode, the hole diagram for a hole will show only measurements that have been recorded against the blasthole.
