Abstract:

The feasibility of defining earthmoving vehicle systems by analytical techniques was demonstrated. The basic methodology and skeletal computer program was developed to determine the costeffectiveness advantages of special equipment systems such as those consisting of multipurpose, multifunction vehicles. The computer program developed has verified the analytical approach by structuring a hypothetical vehicle system whose cost for performing a specific airfield construction was substantially less than the cost incurred by each of three specified engineer combat battalions.
