The aim of this paper is to develop and validate methods of choosing the means of the mining face mechanization. This paper analyses existing methods of optimizing processes in mining. It was established that the effectiveness of the performance map of coal field is formed by a group of technological, operational, and economic parameters which can be represented as a vector of solutions. To find the optimal solution, it was suggested to use network models and graphs. The essence of the technique is to represent the input and output (production level, prime cost) resource flows in an organized structure. Regularities of forming technological schemes of coalfield operation with a given level of performance, taking into account the relationship between technological parameters of mining face, operational parameters of the stoping equipment, technical and economic performance are defined. We developed the system for decision- making support, which allows optimizing operational parameters, reducing the production prime cost, and selecting the structure of the mechanized complex of stoping equipment with a specified level of performance. This paper describes approaches that can be used at the design stage of mining face and in the process of operation.
