A SIMULATION OF A HIGHWAY MAINTENANCE OPERATIONAL UNIT

This is the final report of a study of "The Application of Systems Analysis to Highway Maintenance." Phase I of the study consisted of a broad examination of highway maintenance and identification of problem areas where systems analysis technique appeared to offer promise. Phase II of the study concentrated on structuring and developing the simulation model. The model can provide highway maintenance management with a quantitative means of evaluating the effect of different job scheduling and resource allocation policies on the productivity of a highway maintenance unit. Details are described of the first phase of the study as well as of the 3 main elements of the model: the input, allocation, and output. Machine oriented information such as the flow charts and the computer program augmented by pertinent explanatory notes and information are included in an annexe.
