Systems Analysis as a Research Tool for the Construction and Earthmoving Industry 690363
Engineers and scientists concerned with the creation of intricate organizations of equipment and people have evolved numerous useful analytical techniques which have become a discipline, the science of systems. Producers of major components for earthmoving and construction machines, as well as customers for complete systems, profit by using proved simulation techniques to predict and to optimize overall performance before making major investments in hardware.
Research managers can utilize such system-oriented techniques to develop forecasts of technological objectives and to plan, organize, and evaluate complete research programs. Methods being evolved will enable them to integrate more rationally such incommensurate factors as psychological, social, political, and economic values.
