With the rapid advance in the semiconductor electronics the old stories of computing and huge size computers are replaced with the highly efficient and fast  processing mini and micro computers at a low cost. From 1960’s onwards digital computers have been finding increasing application in planning, designing, operating and controlling industrial systems. A computer’s great power lies in its ability toacquire, store, recall, manipulate and modify enormous volumes of data with in a fraction of seconds.The major advantages of computer-oriented approach arei). Pool proof decision making.ii). Reduction in costs.iii). Increased timeliness of results and efficiency in operationiv). Increased scientific reasoning.v). Forced quantitative thinking. Presently, every field or industry is using the computers enormously at every stage. Mining or mineral Industry is not an exception and using computers for  planning, engineering and control of mines. In particular, the application of computers in solving problems of planning and design, involving the mineatmospheric environment is finding most importance. In earlier days, the Ventilation system of a mine was planned based on the experience and with the use of somethumb rules. Solving of a complex ventilation network of a mine cannot be donemanually and usage of a computer is must. Prof. Hardy-Cross (Cross, 1936; Scott and Hinsley, 1951) has developed aniterative method using computer for solving the complex ventilation networks. Based on the same algorithm, this software program called 
has been developed.This software facilitates the easy drawing of the network with the help of a mouse.Modification of the network and its different parameters can be done with theoperation of different menus. Different alternatives can be tried easily and compared  for better solution. The main advantage of this software program is in its being user  friendly.
(Software for Ventilation Networks) has been developed for designing underground mine ventilation systems keeping in view the present

requirement and the future needs of Indian mining industry. This software programhandles large and complicated mine ventilation networks and solves them in mostefficient manner. The important features of this software are1.Drawing the network with the help of a computer mouse and of its user-friendly nature.2.The use of a new simplified algorithm for solving the complex mineventilation network.3.Analyzing the different alternative schemes of ventilation in a single run of the program.4.Graphical representation of total network on the screen as well as hard copyon printer.5.Post processing of the output and drawing mine characteristics, fancharacteristics and operating point, fixed quantity branches, computation of fan characteristics.6.Handling of data using interactive input output with menu selections andexcellent drawing facility of the network with zooming option.
The major advantages that we are going to get with the usage of this software program are1.For a mine involving complex ventilation circuita.Multi seam and multi section workings can be maintained by proper ventilation with out much pressure differences. b.If there is any problem in any gallery due to spontaneous heating or fire and explosion then the readjustment of quantities so as to reducethe quantity in that particular branch can be easily studied and effect of this reduction in quantity in one branch on other branches can beknown in advance.c.The high resistance branches are identified and with the change inresistance of a particular branch effect on total quantity of the mine can
