A microcomputer is capable of providing an interactive environment for analysis of resource requirements on heavy construction projects. The analysis involves the following: (1) Quantity Development, (2) Resource Definition, (3) Production Analysis, (4) Cost Analysis, (5) Time Analysis, and (6) Resource Optimization. RACO (Resource Analysis of Construction Operations) is a microcomputer system which has been developed to carry out these steps. It integrates simulation, linear programming and other numerical techniques for the solution of the resource and analysis problem within a professional user oriented context. A complete description of RACO is presented, along with the program listing, a users guide and a practical example problem.
