Preface to Construction Equipment Management for Engineers
Construction Equipment Management for Engineers, Estimators, and Owners is meant to be a reference e book for development venture managers, estimators, development gear fleet managers, and skilled engineers.
The e book additionally incorporates data related to each the general public and personal sectors. It incorporates a substantial amount of ‘‘hands-on, how-to’’ details about gear administration based mostly on the authors’ private development experiences all through the world.
It’s written as a information for people who have to estimate the price of gear on a given venture and shouldn’t have knowledge at their fingertips as a result of their routine enterprise doesn’t contain a whole lot of equipment-related development.
The authors additionally hope that their e book might be helpful to the general public company gear supervisor whose want is to reduce gear prices somewhat than to maximise the revenue earned by the gear.
The e book is helpful to all events within the structure, engineering, and development industries in addition to to venture homeowners.
The primary chapter describes the evolution of development gear and serves to set the stage for the next chapters that present particular up-to-date data on the state of artwork within the space.
The chapters on estimating gear possession and working prices and figuring out financial life and alternative coverage might be of nice worth to development estimators. The chapters on figuring out the optimum combine of apparatus and estimating the gear productiveness present the estimator the way to maximize the revenue of an equipment-intensive development venture.
The chapter on scheduling demonstrates the way to convert a linear schedule right into a priority diagram for use in a venture that has a mandated scheduling methodology.
This data has not been revealed earlier than to one of the best of our data and demonstrates to the gear supervisor how to make sure that a production-driven, equipment-intensive venture could be scheduled to attain goal manufacturing charges and therefore goal equipment-related unit prices and earnings.
The e book additionally reveals managers and engineers on the way to keep away from making pricey widespread errors throughout venture gear choice.
It incorporates a matrix that can assist the novice gear supervisor choose the right piece of apparatus based mostly on the necessities of the venture.
It is stuffed with detailed examples of the forms of calculations made to permit each public and personal equipment-owning organizations to find out an optimum gear utilization plan for any venture no matter their ranges of expertise.
Lastly, the gear security chapter describes the way to develop an Occupational Security and Well being Administration (OSHA) job security evaluation for an equipment-intensive venture, thus making this onerous and important activity simpler for the gear supervisor.
This e book is the brainchild of Dr. Calin Popescu of the College of Texas and flows from an early work undertaken to help his graduate civil engineering class in development gear administration.
Dr. Popescu’s focus was on gear used for heavy-civil initiatives. Professor Richard Ryan of the College of Oklahoma blended a lot of his work on managing development gear in constructing development for his development science undergraduate class on development gear into Dr. Popescu’s define to supply a reference that for the primary time treats each horizontal and vertical development initiatives.
