Forecasting Highway Construction Staffing Requirements: A Synthesis of Highway PracticeAuthor/Presenter: Taylor, Timothy R B; Maloney, William F
Adequate construction staffing is critical for performance of highway construction projects. The variable nature of these projects, however, can make it difficult to estimate construction staff requirements for both the short and long term. This study gathered information on the methods being used at highway transportation agencies to forecast staffing requirements. These methods are diverse and range from simple heuristics based on generic project types to multi-variate regression models developed from historical project data.
