|Abstract/Description:||In this FHWA-sponsored pool funded study, a set of decision making tools, based on the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was developed. This tool set is prepared for transportation specialists and decision-makers to determine if ABC is more effective than traditional construction for a given bridge replacement or rehabilitation project. The tool set is user-friendly, flexible to accommodate a range of construction situations, transparent as to the method of calculation, and customizable to maintain future relevance. To accommodate this task, a comprehensive literature review on a number of relevant domains such as ABC construction techniques and decision making approaches, were completed. The findings were summarized into a decision model hierarchy that was also incorporated into the decision making software. The software was tested through evaluating a set of real-world construction projects.|
