Tuncbilek Lignite reserve located at west part of Turkey is one of the important lignite deposites. Recently, pilot full mechanized longwall application has started to increase production in Omerler Coal Mine in this district. The mechanized longwall equipment was transferred to the new panel because first panel was mined out. In order to follow all activities during face move, the Critical Path Analysis was used to evaluate the transportation project. The transportation of the mechanized system was completed in 84 workdays as total duration time. Fifteen activities were defined as critical activity. It could be concluded that the longwall face move would be completed shorter duration time by effective planning of all activities and pre-move organization in this mine for future.
