Using an Expert System for Earthmoving Equipment Selection and Estimation of Low Coasting
Nitesh gupta,  Rakesh gupta,  Mukesh pandey
Earthmoving is often one of the most important operations in many construction projects in terms of its great effect on costs and productivity. In planning earthmoving operations, the selection of appropriate machines and the estimation of earthmoving costs are particularly important The process of selecting and estimating earthmoving equipment relies heavily on human experience and knowledge due to numerous factors influencing selection. Because of the nature of earthmoving equipment planning, it is desirable and Possible.
This thesis addresses the important aspects of earthmoving equipment selection and estimation. Realistic knowledge and experience in the earthmoving process was acquired by sending questionnaires to contractors in Delhi, India and Bhopal Stated and by interviewing experts. By investigating the problems existing in reality, a mathematical model for earthmoving equipment production and cost estimation is proposed and implemented in the expert system developed in this research.
Into which the knowledge obtained from experts in the industry and from other sources was stored, and three data bases. It has the capability of selecting appropriate fleets of machines, from sixty machines considered in the system, and estimates their outputs and costs based on the given working conditions. Through a relatively easy question-answer routine of consultation, recommendations with relevant results can be quickly made and presented by the system.
