Abstract:Cranes often determine the speed of the construction process, but they are also observed idle. This research gives an example of how linear programming can be used to create a schedule for cranes which increases their productivity. The schedule shows when the trucks should arrive to create an efficient schedule for the cranes. By visualizing the results, the weeks during which the productivity is low can easily be detected and the number of rented cranes or crane hours can be lowered in these weeks. This will improve the productivity of the cranes during the entire construction project.
