Construction Manpower Management System

Report No: 90-R14

Published in 1990

About the report:

This report traces the development of and explains the operation of a Construction Manpower Management System (CMMS) developed for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Initial direction for this project was received from the Construction Engineering Manpower Management System Pooled Fund Study and a study performed for VDOT by Price Waterhouse and Roy Jorgensen Associates, Inc. Technical input was received from a project steering committee consisting of VDOT engineers, inspectors, and administrators. This system has been tailored to the specific needs of VDOT and provides projections of construction inspection staffing needs for both the short-term (the next 18 to 24 months) and the long-term (the next 6 years). The short-term projections are very accurate and appear quite adequate for use as a manpower staffing tool and for VDOT presentations to the General Assembly. As anticipated, the long-term projections, which are based on less certain project schedules in years 4 to 6, are not as accurate as those in the short-term. Thus, little use of long-term estimates are anticipated for planning purposes at this time.
