TRC2101 - Update of the ARDOT Workforce Forecasting System

The software used to predict the manpower needed in the Resident Engineer Offices to inspect and administer construction projects is no longer supported; is needing an upgrade due to its age; and is no longer applicable to the current workforce and types of projects being let. The objectives are to develop: an annual forecasting model, a long-range forecasting model and a construction workforce forecasting software tool. The equations used to create the models will be updated by regression modeling, econometric modeling and artificial neural networks.
