I am working on a project that involves doing an analysis of a construction program that an airport has initiated over the past few years and will continue through until about 2024. I am currently looking to understand what data I need to request from our client, in order to provide an accurate analysis. I think that the analysis should cover every aspect of the project. I believe that I should be able to get information by year by section of the program, hopefully divided into hard and soft costs. I also think I need to know/request data for how many employees are involved with each section.
Some questions -->
What activity type should I use? Does it stay an industry change? Do I need to change the activity level?
As I understand it, I will be inputting, in the industry sales category, the total budget of that section of the program for that year (setting the event year to the year that the data is for). If I have the number or employees I would enter that as well.
What should I be doing, if anything, with the proprietor income section?
As the project spans from past years to future years, how do I find results for future project sectors?
What years should I purchase?
I believe, with the project having started in 2013, I will be purchasing years 2013 - 2017 (or whatever is most recently available) excluding 2015 due to already having purchased that year for a previous project.
For estimating impacts of project sections occurring in future years do I simply set the event year to the year that I expect that section of the project to be taking place? What dollar year for view should I be setting my results to as I go from past to current to future?
If I am able to get hard and soft cost spending broken out by my client, is the process different setting up activities and events for them (besides changing the sector)?
What are my applicable sectors? I believe they are 56 (construction of Highways and streets) for hard costs, and 369? (Upholstered household furniture manufacturing) although neither of them in name seem applicable to airport construction.
Do I need to be more detailed with my sectors?
What am I missing? What other data should I be requesting from my client?
As you can tell, I am still very new with Implan, and I know my questions are very basic. The last analysis I did was rather different than this in that the focus was mostly on visitor spending Impact.
Thank you so much!
