Hank Sloan's Log Cost; VT Harvest System Allocation Model; Road construction and maintenance; Virginia Tech spreadsheet. Hourly Operating Costs for Logging Equipment Machine Cost. A very common method of determining a specific logging machine cost is to use a Machine Costing Spreadsheet. This method is very useful for predicting approximate. Logging unit costs are estimated by dividing machine rates by the production rates for the various logging activities. Logging components considered here are felling, bucking, skidding, loading, and transport. Felling and Bucking The major variables in felling and bucking are the tree diameter and the number of bucking cuts after felling. was used to calculate fixed, operating, and labor costs to determine cost of log production. Daily volume of log production, fixed costs, variable costs and labor costs were obtained from owners and crew members for five animal logging operations. However, economic life of new and used equipment, and maintenance and repair costsCited by: Objective:To lay down a procedure for maintaining of equipment log book. Scope:This Standard Operating Procedure is applicable for maintaining of equipment log book associated with product (s) manufactured at formulation plant. Responsibility All the concerned personnel shall be responsible to follow the procedure for maintaining of equipment log book Accountability Concerned Department .

If you multiply the variable costs—which are typically calculated by the hour—by annual hours of operation and add the expenditure to the annual fixed costs, you can calculate the total annual cost of owning the equipment. either ownership or operating costs for equipment or equipment group s of similar model and series is not available. (3) Cost or pricing data is required and available, but all or part of the calculate equipment rates using the methodology required by this pamphlet. The user. Rates listed in the Rental Rate Blue Book are intended as a guide to determine the amount an equipment owner should charge in order to recover equipment-related ownership and operating costs. These rates are derived from cost formulas and factors developed from field research and from analytic methods used in the construction industry. equipment operating expense – the cost of ground engaging components (tires and tracks), fuel, lubrication, mechanics’ time, and parts The benefit of having a two-component cost at bid time is to permit the estimator to incur a daily/monthly rental but to only incur operating expense when the gear is actually operating.

Repairs are fixed costs in some respects and operating costs in other respects. Major repairs such as engine overhauls may be regarded as fixed costs if the owner knows in advance and budgets for the expense. As a result these should be included under depreciation in the fixed cost cate-gory. Minor repairs such as replacement of belts, chains, disk.   Thanks Responder, I have another to determine what it costs us to pay someone say $26 per hour - add % for workers comp, % for unemployment, etc. and then plug that number into the above spreadsheet. The Cost Reference Guide is a former EquipmentWatch publication that served as a guide to ownership and operating costs for construction equipment manufactured within the past five years. The individual cost factors that were presented in the Cost Reference Guide, as well as their suggested methods for adjustment, can be accessed online through. Aircraft Operating Costs 4. AIRCRAFT OPERATING COSTS INTRODUCTION This section provides estimates of variable and fixed aircraft operating costs. Aircraft variable operating costs are important factors in the evaluation of FAA investment and (non-flight equipment.
