  • Abstract:
    The increasing competition in the construction industry today not only calls for lower bid prices but for accurate estimates as well. Therefore, a contractor must continuousiy strive to improve his or her estimating techniques. A computer simulation which can be used to estimate the loss in efficiency that results when a dual cycle system is being started up each shift is presented. It does this by using the CYCLONE simulation model for several different simulated cases.
