As the array of useful equipment expand, the importance of careful planning and execution of construction equipment’s increases. The objective of the project is to predict the fleet production rate and to optimize the number and size of equipment’s in the fleet to match the equipment to project situations. Equipment economics is taken into consideration for the optimization. Observation is done on the actual ongoing highway construction project Fleet performance of practiced fleet is compared with optimized fleet with respect to cost, equipment idle period per cycle and productivity. The project concludes that the performance of fleet is enhanced through optimization of equipment in the fleet.
