Actual quantity: Real-time quantity; also known as built quantity
Bill of quantities: Plan for quantities
Borrow pit: A quantity that can be used to get material to fills, when there is a deficit of suitable material in cuts
Bulking: An increase in volume of earthwork after excavation
Coefficient: If value is set to 1, cut equals fill
Crushing plant: A quantity that can be used to refine one material to another
Disposal area: Dumping ground for excess landfill
Intersection: Connects two locations. Intersections are needed to haul material across locations.
Milestone: Restricts the available time span for tasks. A milestone marks the end of a piece of work or phase of the project. They are often fixed dates or important dates that you need to be aware of. Set a new milestone by setting Milestone as task type.
Quantity: A distribution of material of some quantity type in some location
Quantity type: A type of some material/other amount. Also, facilities (crushing plants, stockpiles, borrow pits, disposal areas) can have dedicated quantity types. Quantity types have suitabilities that define possible hauls between quantity types.
Resource type: Defines the production rate for a quantity type (units/hour)
Shrinkage: A decrease in volume of earthwork after deposition and compaction
Stockpile: Can be used for temporary storing of material to be used in later landfills during a project. Stockpiles are needed if cuts and fills within internal mass haul are scheduled to occur during different periods of time. Stockpiles can either be separate quantities and tasks, or a local stockpile can be enabled on source/destination quantity.
Usage break: Temporary road blocks that might occur on a construction site. Usage breaks are located on road lines and prevent hauls through them.
