STUDIES AND PROJECTS OF BR-101

THE EXISTENCE OF A FINAL ENGINEERING PROJECT ADEQUATELY STUDIED IS AN INDISPENSABLE CONDITION TO FAIR COMPETITION, EXECUTION AND OPERATION, OF ENGINEERING WORK. ACCEPTING THIS ASSERTION THE AUTHORS PRESENT, THE "EXECUTIVE PLANNING" OF A HIGHWAY WORK, OF DER-GB. THE "EXECUTIVE PLANNING" SUBMITTED HERE FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF THE FELLOW ENGINEERS, IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF AN ENGINEERING FINAL PROJECT WHICH WAS THE RESULT OF THE WORK OF A TECHNICAL STAFF, OF DER-GB AND OF THE CONTRACTS CONSULTANTS. THE "FINAL ENGINEERING PROJECT" GAVE ORIGIN TO "WORK BIDDING" AFTERWARDS CONTRACTED WITH THE "AUXILIAR COMP. OF TRANSPORT AND WORKS CAVO". "DEVELOPMENT OF ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES" WERE THEN ESTABLISHED (1963) AT DER-GB FOR THE SUBMISSION OF WORKS PROJECTS. FROM THIS SAME FINAL PROJECT, THE "SERVICES' MANUALS" AND THE "COST COMPARISONS OF DER-GB" AND THE "INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PRESENTATION OF PHYSICAL-FINANCING CHRONOGRAMS" OF EVERYDAY USE UNTIL NOW, WERE APPROVED BY THE EXECUTIVE AND HIGHWAY COUNCILS. AFTERWARDS, THROUGH ELECTRONIC COMPUTERS THE "COSTS TABLES FOR WORKS AND SERVICES" HAVE BEEN UPDATED ON A MONTHLY BASIS. THE ADVANTAGES ARE EMPHASIZED OF GLOBAL PROJECTS", WHERE THE ASPECTS RELATED TO GEOMETRICAL DESIGN, TECHNOLOGICAL STUDIES, EARTHMOVING PROJECTS, DRAINAGE AND PAVEMENTS, STRUCTURAL DESIGN, EXECUTIVE, PLANNING AND ENGINEERING COSTS STUDIES OF THE WORKS ARE ANALYZED SIMULTANEOUSLY. A PRACTICE WAS BEGUN IN 1957, AT THE NATIONAL ENGINEERING SCHOOL (ENE) OF INTENSIVE USE OF "CARTESIAN CHONOGRAMS" IN "EXECUTIVE PLANNING OF HIGHWAY WORKS" CONCEPTS BROADLY DISCUSSED AT THE PLANNING OF THE FIFTH COMMISSION OF THE THIRD ANNUAL MEETING OF ABPV (1962) AND "NOW ALREADY TESTED" BY THE EXPERIENCE OBTAINED BY THE CONTROL OF THE PROGRESS OF THE WORKS EXECUTED BY DER-GB. /RRI/
