About This Course
This course is designed to give beginners a general understanding of how Spry implements haulage theory, the difference between generating and simulating haulage, haul logic as well as some of the best practice methods to build up your haul profiles.
By the end of this course you should be able demonstrate the following:
- The ability to use the various Animation Drawing Tools and Snap Options.
- The ability to georeference an image to your Topography.
- How to set up a model for Haulage applying the concepts of Rolling Resistance, cornering and Truck Payloads.
- How to use Points to generate simple static haul profiles.
- How to add centroids to your Points to create more representative Point based haulage.
- How use Priority to determine which Haul Profiles get chosen and an understanding of how Spry chooses between Hauls with the same Priority.
- How to use simple Vectors to create constant grades alongside your Centroid based Haulage.
- An understanding of what Adding a Step to the Profile does and how to use Steps that aren't added.
- How to draw and make use of Road Networks.
- An understanding of, if not a practical application of, intermediate and advanced Vector and Rule techniques such as Line Intersections, Group Direction and Vector Conditions.
- How to use the new results availabe in Haulage as well as the difference between Raw and Adjusted Results
Ideally you have already completed previous courses. If you have not, you should understand the fundamentals of how data is managed in Spry and how Schedules are generated.
