Operational Aids for Improved Dragline Utilization 790515

An on-board dragline display and information gathering system was developed to generate and display to the operator performance information pertaining to the dragline operation. This is feedback information for use in skill improvement and procedural aids. The system is also used to store information including data entered by the operator for later printout. The prototype system was initially developed under a contract with the U.S. Bureau of Mines and the U.S. Department of Energy. The system was evaluated on an operating dragline. Production design has been completed and the first production system is operational in the field.
