Computer Assisted System for Construction Robot Implementation Logistics

Temporary Facilities—Making It Happen, Organization and Logistics
As construction projects become larger, more complex and are constructed both faster and under more adverse conditions--the use of temporary facilities is more prevalent. Temporary facilities...

Development of Transportation Operations Requirements: Operations Planning
Transport conditions at various utility sites vary dramatically in terms of characteristics at and near the site, requirements, administrative procedures, and other factors. Continuation...

A Demonstration of the Systems Integration Modeling System (SIMS) as a Decision-Support Tool
In April 1989, the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management (OCRWM) Integration Branch completed major demonstration of the Systems Integration Modeling System (SIMS). That system...

Antarctic Testbed for Extraterrestrial Operation and Technology
A remote and harsh environment, Antarctica has areas which are more similar to the Moon and Mars than anywhere else on Earth. The physical similarities, coupled with strong parallels between...

Application of Statistical Distribution Theory to Launch-on-Time for Space Construction Logistic Support
The Center for Space Construction (CSC) has acquired historical launch vehicle data for analyzing space launch vehicle logistic support of space construction. This analysis will include...

Normal Accidents and Logistics in Space Operations
Unpredictable systemic accidents, normal accidents, will occur in highly-complex large-scale space systems. To mitigate the catastrophic consequences of normal accidents, containment engineering...

Space Station - New Venture/Old Problem
Four key operations-related costs are associated with the Space Station: (1) transportation, (2) data management, (3) sustaining engineering, and (4) integrated logistics. Life cycle cost...

Logistics Support of Space Facilities
The logistic support of space facilities is described, with especial attention given to the problem of sizing the inventory of ready spares kept at the space facility. Where possible,...

Antarctic Research and Lunar Exploration: Useful Parallels
Review of the process of scientific exploration in the Antarctic may provide insights into areas that might pose problems to man when further exploration of the lunar surface is begun....

The DST Well: Its Importance and Lessons Learned
A Deep Stratigraphic Test (DST) well is a unique source of stratigraphic information; and provides critical data on drilling conditions, logistics, materials; and subsurface conditions...

Logistics for Structures Sealifted to the Arctic
Sohio has successfully pioneered the development of the Prudhoe Bay reservoir by sealifting prebuilt oil processing facilities from the lower 48 states. The experience thus gained is being...

Predicting Areas of Groundwater Contamination
Logistic regression has been used to estimate the probability that a metropolitan area will contain one or more water supply sites with contamination by one or more of six frequently occurring...

Incinerator Ship Systems As Viewed from the Coastal Zone

Scheduling: Effective Methods and Techniques
Network planning and analysis (CPM) is a proven means to outline the many activities to be performed and to investigate the feasibility of a given construction project. Commencing with...

Marketing Implications of Perceptions of Transit
Perceptions of Public Transit and other, psychographic, information are used to develop a segmentation-based approach to marketing public transit. Factor analysis is used to identify differences...

Logistics and Material Acquisition in Construction

Earthmoving Logistics
The mass diagram has long aided managers of highway construction who plan the movement of material. A newer method based on linear programming is presented. It not only provides results...

Logit Analysis of Transit Station Access

Pivot Point Modeling Procedures in Demand Estimation
Estimation of charges in travel demand is usually a prerequisite to assessing the costs and benefits associated with such policies. Pivot point technique, using an incremental logit model,...
