Major Equipment Lifecycle Cost Analysis
equipment deterioration curves and probabilistic input variables for capital costs fuel and other operating costs to demonstrate enhanced ability to optimize fleet management decisions. The interest rate was found to have a greater impact on economic life output than fuel prices for a dump truck. The fuel volatility did impact the lifecycle
Productivity in Construction
1986 and 1990 the productivity of construction labour in Japan increased by 6.6 a year while Canadian construction productivity rose by only 1.6 . In response to this dilemma the Con struction Division of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering CSCE developed and im plemented a program with a view to improving productivity.

Construction Contingency A standardized markup applied to the construction cost of a project that accounts for uncertainties in quantities unit costs and minor risk events that typically take place during construction. Refer to the . Plans Preparation Manual Section 800.03 for guidance on estimating construction contingency.
CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of the study
1.1 Background of the study The importance of the Construction Industry to national economies the world over cannot be over emphasized. According to Mike et al 2011 by 2020 construction will account for 13.2 of world GDP indi ing an upward trend. This is seen in the provision of basic
Assessment of Heavy Equipment Operating Cost Estimates from
Equipment managers use estimates of operating costs in a variety of decision making processes but most significantly in setting cost recovery rates and establishing equipment replacement cycles. Overestimating operating costs adversely impacts the results of both processes and leads to higher than necessary rates and over recovery of costs as
