start-up, checking aggregate moisture content and gradation,
the loader operator blending stockpile faces while feeding the
plant, and proper mix production, silo, loadout, and trucking
management. At the paving project, the basics would include
consistent (not stop and start) paving, starting with proper
paver setup, truck to paver mix transfer without segregation,
then good joint construction and grade control for smoothness
at a consistent pace that  allows for adequate compaction to
be achieved. A fundamental that can't be forgotten along the
way is using real-time mix and construction QC and acceptance
inspection/testing observations that can be leveraged to correct
course along the way, as well as for improvement when getting
started the next day. These and several other basics are what
we will be reminded of in the upcoming plant production and
paving back-to-basics webinars.
So that grizzled superintendent deserved his reputation, and
at the end of the day I finally asked him why he would only
move north and south from where we were standing. At first, he
didn't answer, but rather just looked at me, then looked straight
overhead where there was a series of low-hanging high voltage
powerlines. Once I looked up he simply said, "I want us all to

go home safe and sound tonight." That day and in the many
that followed shadowing that superintendent provided valuable
lessons in basic plant and paving fundamentals coupled with
safety, quality and production leadership.
In hindsight that grizzled superintendent was actually a lot like
Vince Lombardi. He focused on proper planning with consistent
execution of basic fundamentals and constant communication
for success. It's interesting how focusing on fundamentals led
to  success for the Green Bay Packers nearly 50 years ago, a
grizzled superintendent 20 years ago, and they are equally
important today!
