Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Management and Methods in Concrete Highway Construction The construction of a concrete pavement is a manufacturing process in which labor and machinery are used to handle, treat, and place in final position those materials which are the necessary ingredients of the pavement. The contractor s problem is to obtain a profit from this work. He desires to do good work. Commonly he is willing to follow any reasonable course of action in order to secure good work. Nevertheless, his primary objective is profit. This he must have or he must go out of business. But the question of whether an operation will yield a good profit or net a serious loss is largely dependent on the skill with which the labor he employs and the equipment he owns are used. For this reason, the management of production and the use of appropriate production methods are of paramount importance to contractors and to their superintendents. A discussion of these matters should also be of value to designing engineers in that a more complete knowledge of the elements which affect cost should enable them to give a broader consideration to these matters when design and specifications are under consideration. Construction engineers and inspectors also will find a knowledge of the principles of production management and of good construction practice of assistance, for, though their primary objective is quality, a knowledge of the principles and the practices of efficient management should make it a simpler matter to secure the desired quality without endangering the contractor s profit. This discussion of the management of production and of appropriate methods has, then, been prepared primarily for contractors and their superintendents, and for engineers who are dealing with the various phases of concrete pavement construction. On this account, it has been possible to eliminate many of the details which would be desirable in a book especially prepared for the instruction of men unfamiliar with the technique of this work.
