The management of equipment allocation for earthmoving operations is a complex dynamic series of discrete events. This paper presents a common and flexible Petri net model for the optimization of equipment allocation for a given construction period, cost and labor. A case study was conducted on a real construction project involving earthmoving operations. The data required by the research was collected on-site. A Petri net model was used to represent the dynamic constraint relationships among… CONTINUE READING
