The cost minimizing solution of the transportation problem for the location of the building machinery yard along the road under construction

Hubert Jerzy Anysz


This paper presents costs arisen from every-day transport of building machinery from the yard located by the road being constructed to the place of work. These costs are not directly associated with the income creating. The optimal choice of the place for the machinery yard can substantially lower these costs. The following two methods of finding the optimal place were proposed: based on the shortest distance and based on the lowest cost of building machinery self-transport. They were calculated for the exemplary data. Applying the method based on the lowest cost allows fi nding more than one location of machinery yard. The cost of applying more than one yard can reduce much more the costs of construction site.
