dc.description.abstract The cost of communication systems was found to be significant and appropriate engineering is required to reduce the total cost of ownership. The profit opportunity enabled through communication systems is also enormous, and therefore 'downtime' is of major significance. <br><br> This emphasised the need for generic design guideline models, and the development of critical measures or practices to be adhered to within the business. <br><br> Three classes of mines ('Long', 'Medium' and 'Short Term') were identified in preparation for the technology models, primarily differentiated on the basis of automation requirements, expected life, and how much of the envisaged communications infrastructure was already in place. Four communications domains were identified as necessary for the 'Medium Term' mines, but with the possibility of reducing this for the 'Long Term' mines. <br><br> Models were developed for use as a guideline or vision for the long and medium term mines, and a set of criteria developed for the use as a guideline for technology choice of short term mines. <br><br> A number of measures were identified as necessary for the optimum management of communication system type issues. en
