To meet a key goal of the ACRP Strategic Plan, the AOC approved and funded the development of a systematic method to identify research products in need of updating. The resulting method considers ACRP's operational factors, research roadmaps, metrics for measuring product use and benefits, industry trends, industry input from subject matter experts, and potential efficiencies to be gained by how products can be updated (e.g., grouping or combining products, or updating sections of reports). To date, the method has been applied to ACRP's research related to the environment as well as policy and planning, along with products focused on airport administration and finance. ACRP also has many products related to airport operations, and some of these probably need updates.
The objectives of this research are to conduct (1) a systematic review of ACRP products related to airport operations to identify those products in need of updating and (2) the research needed to update the highest-priority products.
