Definition
Innovation, a broad social and economic activity within emerging societies, transcends any specific
technology, even if revolutionary, and is tied to attitudes and behaviors oriented towards the exploitation
of change by adding value.
The solution-space for innovation for sustainability is characterized by three dimensions:
 the entire lifespan of a product;
 the entire socio-technique network of which a particular plant is part of, or from which a particular
product emerges;
 stakeholders and decision processes, including business organizations and strategies; and public
institutions, policy and regulatory frameworks.

Automation vs. Mechanization
Before purchasing equipment, growers must decide what level of automation is suitable as
per the Bhutanese scenario.
Mechanization- the replacement of a human task with a machine.
Automation - involves the entire process, including bringing material to and from the
mechanized equipment.
It normally involves integrating several operations and ensuring that the different pieces of
equipment talk to one another to ensure smooth operation .

CASE STUDY

Emerging trends & innovation in roads mechanization
Over half of the world’s infrastructure investment is now taking place in
emerging economies, where sales of construction equipment have risen more
than fivefold since 2000.
In total, emerging economies are likely to spend an estimated $1.2 trillion on
roads, railways, electricity, telecommunications and other projects, equivalent to
6% of their combined GDPs — twice the average infrastructure- investment ratio
in developed economies.

Emerging trends & innovation in roads mechanization
The World Bank estimates that a 1% increase in a country’s infrastructure stock is
associated with a 1% increase in the level of GDP.
A 1% rise in income per head leads to a 0.5% increase in demand. Putting this
together, energy demand may have to surge by 140% in China and by 80% in India
over the next decade.
A 1% increase in income per person leads to a 1.4% increase in the number of
passengers travelling by air, so the number of air passengers could jump by more
than 350% in China and by 200% in India over the next decade.

EQUIPMENT SELECTION CRITERIA
Increased demand of equipment with distinctive
features are driving the stationary concrete pumping
and concrete boom pumps sector in emerging
economies.
Specialization is being characterized in utilization of
concrete pumps among contractors both for high end
and real estate projects.
The distinction is essentially in terms of usage of
equipment with enhanced concrete pumping pressure,
better reach and rugged features to counter abrasion.

Mobile vs. Static Crushers: The Better Deal
• As per the global trend, there is an
increased acceptance of mobile crushers
•They
have
greater
mobility,
and
compactness coupled with host of other
benefits.
•Nonetheless, static crushers are best
equipped for high capacity mining
activities.

Mobile vs. Static Crushers: Comparison
The demand choice for a Track mounted mobile crusher :
 Rapidly rising cost of quarry operation
 Led by lack of qualified manpower to operate the plants.
65-70% of the crushing aggregate market is dominated by
Track Mounted mobile plants.
Compact equipment which can move from site to site at a rapid pace
with minimal logistical hassles.

 Being mobile, compact and self-driven, enables the tracked units to
operate close to the quarry site, thereby curtailing the use of large
conveyors belts, in turn offsetting recurring operating maintenance costs.
 The tracked equipment can be commissioned and dismantled in a day
or a week time at the outmost, thereby keeping residual losses at bare
minimal, as compared to a static plant.”

Construction Sector: Current Scenario & Emerging Trends
Crusher manufacturers are placing products
with
improved
features
for
higher
productivity coupled with low operating
costs for the aggregate industry.
Significant
improvements
automated
features
in
like
the
adding
machines,
dovetailed by making the equipment rugged
for
higher
productivity
and
lower
maintenance & cut down on manual
operations which in turn will bring down
operation costs to a good extent, as skilled
manpower is getting costly to afford by
most of the aggregate producers.

Chained Equipment Composition Application
Here, the selection of equipment is based on need in order to save time and increase
productivity with quality. A road-broom, batching plant, hauling trucks, paving
equipment and a tandem roller are engaged in sequence. By doing so, a lot time is
saved, productivity/output is optimized and quality is assured.

Advantages of Mechanization (Global Scenario)
 Cost savings leads to improve product quality and time saving.
 Large scale automation and integration of modern manufacturing system
 Computer control technologies and communication network.
 Trouble free operations
Advantages of Mechanization (Bhutanese Scenario)
 Reduction of imported laborers
Job opportunity for national skilled workers
16
Conclusion
 Bhutan cannot remain isolated and shy away from the use of
available technology and has to find out solution by proper selection
of the technology in Bhutanese scenario.
 The Mechanization through improved technology would bring a
remarkable change to the construction sector in the kingdom in the
sense that it will be a milestone in Bhutan’s construction industry’s
accession to the development of technology and professionalism in
construction, through successful show casing by CDCL.
