A life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) is an analysis methodology that enable engineers, designers, and decision makers to better understand the economic impacts of infrastructure decisions over time along with the opportunities that exist to reduce impacts. CSHub pavements LCCA research considers life cycle, context, and future, and also incorporates risk.
