CLMA® WEBSITE, APPLICATION and ANALYTICS TERMS & CONDITIONS
CLMA® ANTI-TRUST TERMS & CONDITIONS
The CLMA® was carefully designed and developed to avoid any activity or data exchange that would result in an anti-competitive environment. Please review this legal research document that validates that the CLMA® as a pro-competitive planning tool. [Last updated 2014Oct27]
To ensure the project and labor data provided by owners and contractors is secure and easily accessible 24/7, the CLMA® model is housed in a state-of-the-art, highly secure server facility designed for this purpose. This document details the related security, facility, technology and team specifications.
PROJECT LABOR FORECASTER®
The CLMA® employs the Project Labor Forecaster® (PLF) which uses CIR’s proprietary algorithms designed to assist in determining project skilled labor requirements. This document outlines the numerous industrial, commercial and infrastructure industry types and algorithms used in this CLMA®.
PROJECT COST ALLOCATION
To assist in developing and inputting construction labor data for projects which do not yet have detailed estimates, the CLMA® includes a proprietary Project Labor Forecaster® (PLF®) which translates project budgets into labor headcount estimates. This document shows how labor costs for a particular project are allocated when the PLF® is employed.
CRAFT LABOR DISCIPLINES
The CLMA® collects and aggregates project labor requirements and labor availability for 42 unique skilled craft disciplines, with plans to collect and aggregate information on indirect labor disciplines in the near future. This document outlines the craft titles and descriptions used in this CLMA®.
DODGE DATA & ANALYTICS FORECAST METHODOLOGY
All non-industrial data in this CLMA® is imported from Dodge Data & Analytics, converted to skilled labor headcount using the PLF® and made available for aggregation along with industrial data. For over 30 years, Dodge forecasts, prepared by some of the industry’s most respected economists, have served the industry’s strategic, market planning, and analytic needs with comprehensive projections of building activity for virtually all geographies and construction categories. This document outlines the methodology used in these forecasts.
BUILDING COMPREHENSIVE LABOR MARKET INFORMATION
This document focuses on how proven, innovative forecasting technology was leveraged to collect, aggregate, and produce craft labor data used by industry for project planning and the development of targeted labor supply solutions. It highlights the importance and use of regional networks comprising diverse industry stakeholders to help build a comprehensive craft labor market information system. The CLMA® is the next generation of this technology.
