Abstract

Mining industry is lacking in application of information technology (IT) (Das, 2001; Kumar and Guha, 2001). To achieve the future production target, coal mining industry has to improve its productivity and safety by enhancing mechanization (Reid et al., 2000; Hainsworth et al., 2001; Sen, 2001), increasing online monitoring (Bandyopadhyay et al., 2005a), implementing wireless communication systems in underground (Bandyopadhyay et al., 2005b), and adopting appropriate application-based IT system (Prasad, 1997; Chandramouli and Singh, 2003; Chaulya et al., 2008). This chapter presents a web-based information and decision support system required for coal mining industry.
