A computer-aided technique is being developed for planning, design, estimating, and scheduling of horizontal construction for facilities required to support military operations. This technique permits the user to quickly analyze possible sites and identify those which would require the least construction effort. Once the user selects the site for a facility, the system can design the earthwork, quantify the effort for each earthmoving function, estimate equipment productivity for those functions, and generate a construction schedule. This paper describes the technique and the procedures used.
