8 What Kind Of Machines Need 2D Project Monitoring? Typically bulk earthmoving machinesOn and Off Road Dump TrucksScrapersWheeled Loaders
9 VisionLink Terminology Project BoundaryLimits of the projectAll events at project level are counted and reported onceSite BoundaryThe same event at site level may be counted in multiple overlapping Site boundariesCan be one of the following categoriesCut ZoneFill ZoneStockpileBorrow PitDump ZoneGeneric Site
10 VisionLink Terminology CandidateA load or dump event generated automatically by an asset entering a valid site boundary category and stoppingThe definition of when an asset is stopped is configurableBelow a speed threshold for a period of timeValid site boundary categories to generate a load or dump candidate areBorrow Pit, Cut Zone, Dump Zone, Fill Zone and Stockpile.The asset needs to be inside a valid site boundary category in order to create a stop/start event i.e. a dumpA stop outside a valid site boundary category (as defined above) including inside the project boundary will not generate a candidateLoad and dump candidates will not cross daily reporting, they have to occur on the same day
11 Proximity-based loads 2D PM setting for loader / hauler with radiusLoad Count Report shows loading assetMore accurate than site-only load calculationGives user more confidence in load statistics accuracyCombinations:Excavator – TruckLoader – TruckDozer – ScraperRequires SNM940 on loading asset
12 VisionLink Terminology Load (or Cut)Event where material is loaded onto an assetMay include a switched eventDump (or Fill)Event where material is dumped from an assetLoad CountA unit of measure encompassing a load event to a Dump event
13 VisionLink Terminology CycleA unit of measure encompassing a load event in a site boundary to the next load event in the same site boundary. (A cycle may contain many load counts)
14 VisionLink Terminology Cut Local: (to this site)Quantity of material that has been loaded (or cut) then dumped (or filled) within the same siteCut Outgoing: (to another site)Quantity of material that has been loaded (or cut) from one site and then dumped (or filled) in another site.
15 VisionLink Terminology Cut: Undefined SiteQuantity of material that has been loaded (or cut) in one site and then dumped (or filled) into an undefined area that is not within a site or project boundary
16 VisionLink Terminology Fill Local: (from this site)Quantity of material that has been dumped (or filled) when loaded (or cut) from the same site.Fill Incoming: (from another site)Quantity of material that has been dumped (or filled) when loaded (or cut) from another site.
17 VisionLink Terminology Fill: Undefined SiteQuantity of material that has been dumped (or filled) when loaded (or cut) from an undefined area that is not within a site or project boundary.
18 VisionLink Terminology Time Per LoadTime for a load count i.e. between a load and a subsequent dump eventAverage time per load is the sum of times per load divided by the number of loads
19 VisionLink Terminology Load TimeTime between site entry and site exit events with a single load event in betweenUses innermost site time to populate outer sites if sites are nestedAverage loading time is the sum of load times divided by the number of loads
20 VisionLink Terminology Haul TimeTime between a site exit from a load site to the dump event time (with no loads or dumps in between)Haul DistanceDistance between a site exit from a load site to the dump event
21 VisionLink Terminology Cycle TimeTimes between consecutive loads in the same site. (A cycle may contain many load counts)Cycle DistanceDistance travelled between consecutive loads in the same site. (A cycle may contain many load counts)
22 VisionLink Terminology Loads per Hour (within a site)Load events / (working time + idle time)Volume per Hour (within a site)(Load events x volume per load) / (working time + idle time)
23 What are the components of a “Cycle” or “Load” Load timeHaul (loaded)Dump is a completed loadHaul return (unloaded) is a completed cycle
24 How To Measure Load Time Using a manual switch in the cabUsing a site entry and site exit event to a site boundary (cut zone type)
25 How To Measure Dump Time Using a switch on the machine – e.g. a dump switch on the load bed of the machineUsing a Site Entry and Site Exit event to a Site Boundary (Fill Zone Type)
26 Setting Up A Haul Route Cut Zone Site Boundary Project Boundary Site Fill Zone SiteBoundariesHaul 1= 1x Load= 1x CycleReport on the Haul Site BoundaryUse the Cut Zone and Fill Zone Site Boundaries for Events and Times
27 Methods Available Switch to switch Site to site Site to switch Switch to siteNote:Site boundaries are still used to determine load time and dump time
29 2D Project Monitoring Concept Trimble Building Site projectUsed Business Center – HCE Site Mass Haul moduleBuildingOverexcavation 1.5mCut first then backfillCut goes into fill areaNorth part of jobCut - backfills buildingResidual goes to fillBorrow from offsiteMeets deficit volume

31 Mass Haul Planning Process does not require 3D Machine Control Take Zone 4 – Zone Cut in Zone 4 = 8941 yd3Utilize a single CAT 627G ScraperBowl capacity m3Target Hauls = 8941/15 = 596 (Target Cycle Count)Average Haul Distance = 428m (Target Cycle Distance = 856m)Average Haul Speed = 30kmhAverage Haul Time = 1.72 minAverage Load Time = 0.4 minAverage Dump Time = 0.6 minTotal Cycle Time = 2.72 minTotal Haul Time required = hrs = ~3.5 daysProcess does not require 3D Machine ControlJust an estimate of machine capacityKnowing the Target Metrics allows us to Monitor effectively
32 VisionLink Monitored Site Data Entry Zone 4 Cut feeds Zone 1 and Zone 5Zone 5 Fill is fed by Zones 4,3,5,2 and borrow from offsite
33 Manage Monitored Sites Monitored sites belong to a projectOnly sites that belong to the currently selected project should be placed on the project dashboardEach project has its own dashboard of monitored sitesSites that are shared across multiple projects, e.g. a waste site or borrow pit can be monitored on all of the projects that they are serving as requiredIf you want the monitored site on the dashboard then click the dashboard icon
36 Project Settings – 2D Monitoring Set up each of the machines you want to monitor in 2D. Assets must be setup before they submit 2D data to the Project.
37 Setting Up an Asset for 2D Monitoring Asset 2D settings can be edited throughout the project. Cost rates, load count targets and load volumes can be changed and this will retrospectively update project data.
38 Monitored Sites Dashboards All projects automatically get a 2D project dashboardCreate monitored sites and add up to 18 to the dashboardThe project counts all loads/dumps that fall within the project boundary

59 3D Project MonitoringVisionLink allows the definition of multiple projectsThe project is defined by a project boundaryEach project has its own production modelTAG files with data inside the project boundary are automatically importedThe production model is a 4D databaseXYZ plus time and other attributesVisionLink can query any surface, volume or compaction surface at any date or time
60 3D Project Monitoring Comprises two main operational functions Volumes and SurfacesCompactionThese used to be known as Compaction Manager and Volumes Manager they are now both part of 3D Project Monitoring
61 Volumes Provides surfaces of machine data that can be used to display Coverage mapsElevation mapsCut/fill maps (measured compared to design)Compute volumes between measured and design dataCompute volumes between measured data at different timesBlade On Ground (BOG) on graders and dozers for better dataTrimble SCS900 Site Controller Software topo surfaces can be loaded into VisionLink for a composite project surface (rover + machine)
62 Elevation Profiles First Pass = First Cut in Existing Ground Last Pass = Current Ground
65 Compaction Tracks compaction by layer Pass counts CMV values Monitors pass count over entire surface from one or multiple machines against a target pass count valueHighlights over- or under-compaction areasCMV valuesMonitors the Compaction Meter Values (CMV) over the entire surface from one or multiple machinesHighlights compaction inconsistencies such as soft spotsMachine Drive Power (MDP) valuesIf pass count and CMV / MDP consistency is good then surface is likely to pass inspectionTemperature mapping values (asphalt compaction)
67 CompactionIntelligently monitors compaction over the entire surface area being compactedMore reliable than a few spot checks using a nuclear densometer or core sampleProvides an aggregated view of compaction from all machines on all layers of the surface being constructedOn Design, Build, Fund, Operate projects – consistent compaction over entire surface will increase life of surface, reduce maintenance costs and improve ride smoothnessCan also use to verify elevations and cut / fill
68 VisionLink OverviewVisionLink is the ‘post machine’ environment tool. It is used primarily for fleet and project management. Project focus within VisionLink is the migration of SiteVision Office ‘production server’ functionality to VisionLink.SiteVision OfficePre-machine FunctionalityPost-machine FunctionalityBusiness Center - HCEVisionLink
69 Vision Link Project Focus Create a projectImport a design from Connected CommunityView and analyse Project DataBusiness Center - HCETag files (Project data)DesignsGCS900ConnectivityVisionLinkConnected Community
70 Creating a ProjectA project is created from the ‘Manage Projects’ menu item from the Administration menu. Clicking New Project will launch the New Project Wizard
71 Creating a ProjectConnect to Business Data Center to import design from Connected Community
72 Creating a ProjectA project boundary once created cannot be edited!
73 Creating a ProjectThe coordinate system selected for the project should be the same one used by assets contributing data
74 Importing and Viewing Files Manage Imports is the means to import and delete files from a project. A user must have a project selected in Command Center before selecting Manage Imports from the Administration menu.
75 Importing and Viewing Files Connect to Business Data Center and select a Project (Jobsite in BC – HCE) to import files from.
76 Importing and Viewing Files Specify units (DXF – must be same as source) and file type for selected Imports
77 Importing and Viewing Files A coordinate system if not specified upon project creation must be specified when importing files
78 Importing and Viewing Files Designs, linework and alignments once imported are rendered and displayed in the Map View.
79 Importing and Viewing Files All imported files (except coordinate systems) are listed in the Manage Imports screen. They can be hidden, deleted or contrasted.
80 CoverageCoverage is simply every cell an asset has driven over or coveredOr surveyed surface as imported from time stamped TTM file
81 ElevationElevation is the elevation range an asset was at while passing over the cell.Elevation data can be profiled using a slicer tool
82 Cut/FillSelecting a design surface to compare to production data in terms of cut and fill
83 CMV SummaryCompaction Meter Value – For compactors only to measure CMV per cell compared to machine specified targets
84 MDP SummaryMachine Drive Power – For new Cat compactors only to measure MDP per cell compared to machine specified targets
85 Pass Count DetailDetailed asset pass counts based on actual number passes over each cell
86 Pass Count SummarySummary asset pass counts based on actual passes over each cell compared to machine specified targets
87 TemperatureAsphalt Compactors (ACOM) temperature data based on temperature readings
88 Summary VolumesGround to groundDesign to groundGround to design
89 Summary VolumesSummary volumes calculations based on design to ground, ground to design and ground to groundDesign to ground uses the design as the basis and compares it to the ground (filter).Ground to design uses the ground (filter) as the basis and compares it to the design.

97 Project SettingsProject settings are the means to change color palettes, apply user specified compaction override values, edit coordinate systems or add shrinkage and bulking to volume calculations.
98 Project SettingsProduction data such as pass counts and CMV values can contain machine targets, project settings can override these values with user specified targets, this will update the production within the project
99 Project SettingsProduction data such as CMV summary and MDP summary can be analysed and viewed on a top layer only basis or all layers basis. If you select all layers a cell showing the ‘compacted’ colors indicates that all layers in that area meet the CMV/target lift thickness.
