Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Earthmoving and Heavy Equipment


This paper describes an advanced computerized method for designing an optimized earth distribution plan for a linear earthmoving project. Modeling and computerized simulation offer a quantitative tool for conducting sensitivity analysis of various fleet conbinations chosen by a user. The logic of an integrated intelligent simulator is discussed. Finally, potentials of an 'on-line' control system outlined the future steps to monitor and actually manage production of ongoing earthmoving and other construction jobs.
