SPR-4704: Evaluating Robustness of MDSS Forecast and Compliance with Recommendations

Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS) forecasts have been used for many years. INDOT also has developed a series of dashboards characterizing road conditions, position of plow trucks, and application rates. This project will conduct a systematic unit-by-unit evaluation on how close the units follow MDSS forecasts (application rates, deployment times) and the corresponding road conditions. After action reviews to see how close MDSS came to forecasting location, severity, and timing of winter events will also be conducted.
