With the aim of the modernization of the coal exploitation, a research study on establishing the computer supported information-management system at the open pit mine “Drmno”, within the Coal Basin Kostolac was completed. The study gives a review of the concept, logical and physical topology, communicational ambience, architecture, course of further activities, development dynamics, and framework of expenses and benefits of computer supported information-management system construction. The paper presents a short review of the real system, goals, basic demands, concept and topology of the information-management system establishment. A development strategy and effects expected upon the establishment of the information-management system are presented at the end of paper.
