Earthmoving operations are often a very important aspect of a civil engineering project. Very accurate knowledge of the earthmoving operation is often the vital, critical element in the formation of a good and accurate cost estimate and schedule because of its prominent role in influencing costs and time. Inaccuracies are often built into earthmoving estimates by the fairly sweeping assumptions that are made during the estimating process. These problems were revealed in answers to a… CONTINUE READING
