Abstract: The greatest cost reductions and improvements in speed and efficiency on construction sites have come when management analyzes work methods, administrative and environmental constraints, and how these factors affect work in the field.

Examined are each individual vehicle and combinations thereof to determine which methods are best for particular job sites.
