Are the transportation systems in SA integrated? It’s time to start shifting our mind-sets


Transportation systems define more than just the mode of transport – it includes all movement that one makes to get to their destination.  Imagine wearing black goggles with a tiny spot in the centre being your only way of sight. Now imagine walking across a busy intersection that does not accommodate for your crossing.  Being partially sighted is a real issue, why doesn’t our country make provision for all its road users?  Join us as we explore all of the WHY’s and get answers from our expert panelists?

New Dynamic Modelling Framework Optimising Value Chains


While the mining industry is steadily moving towards automation, it’s comparatively slow in adopting new technology.  Decision-makers still rely on basic tools that don’t have the capability to holistically model complex mining value chains. There is clearly a need for effective, user-friendly decision support tools that guide operational and strategic decision-making.  The Dynamic Constraints Model, developed by Datta Burton & Associates, closes this gap.

CESMM3 - Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement Southern African Edition


Author: ICE  

ICE  

The southern African edition of CESMM3 is suitable for use with international, national, organisational and bespoke standards using most forms of contract. The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) published a report of a committee dealing with engineering qualities in 1993 which provides a standard procedure for the drafting of bills of quantities for civil engineering work. ICE therefore published the Standard Method of Measurement of Civil Engineering Quantities in 1953.

Project Management and the Law - Practical guidelines for management of engineering and building contracts


Author: Tertius du Toit
 
The purpose of these guidelines is to provide the reader with some insight into the interface between the law and the things that we as technical professionals do every day. The fact is that the law impacts on almost everything we do and get done by others – and all our business ventures, whether for ourselves or our employers, or on behalf of our clients. 
A further aim is to give project managers and consultants, as well as senior management, a better understanding of the different constructural relationships created by the different types of contracts.
