    Description

    The objectives in this study were to develop and test a data analysis system for calculating machine productivity from GPS-derived positional information alone. A technique was used where positions were `filtered' initially to locate specific events that were independent of what actually traveled the path, then these events were combined using user-specified rules into machine functions. The system was successful in producing gross-time-study data but less so in providing detailed elemental times.
