The features of simulation application of the computer systems in a mining production and the methods of their creation and efficiency application are considered. The UML-diagram of general simulation system forming of the mine which contain the basic mining processes of production is offered. This elaboration is opened, that allows connecting the necessary modules of calculation at the change of mine and geological situation in extraction area. It is oriented on the mutual tying up of all technological chain of separate coal extraction enterprise: processes of working face, transporting of the reflected rock mass and other. Such model enables effectively to manage the mining processes. The special attention is spared the simulation of wallface. This system enables to show out on the display of computer as simulation the real situation or certain model with the proper admittances in relation to authenticity of results and to carry out monitoring and management of mine production processes directly from the mine surface. Examples of such models are made for the separate mine and geological conditions of the mines SC «Pavlogradvugillya» and SC «Lvivvugillya». The economic evaluation of efficiency work of the simulation systems is executed on the mines of the mentioned companies.
