About the APM
The Analysis Procedures Manual (APM) provides the current methodologies, practices and procedures for conducting long term analysis of Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) plans and projects.
A major update of the manual is currently in progress. APM version 2 will incorporate methodologies from sources such as the 2010 Highway Capacity Manual (HCM) and the Highway Safety Manual (HSM). As new chapters or sections of APM version 2 are completed, they will be published on this webpage, and APM version 1 will be modified to refer to the version 2 procedures.
There are currently no announcements.
APM User Group
The Analysis Procedures Manual User Group (APMUG) is open to all interested parties either internal or external to ODOT. For information on APMUG click this link. If you are interested in joining the group, contact Doug Norval.
Next meeting of the APMUG:
Date: July 10, 2013
Location: ODOT Region 1 Headquarters, 123 NW Flanders Street, Portland, OR
Start time: 9:00 am (tentative)
End time: 4:00 pm (tentative)
Suggestions for agenda topics and presenters are requested. Please submit any suggestions to Doug Norval.
Highway Capacity Manual
2010 Highway Capacity Manual methods should be followed on all new projects. Projects that were started prior to the 2010 HCM should continue to use methods of the HCM 2000. The APM Version 2 update will be providing further guidance on use of the new HCM 2010 methods as chapters are developed.

Addendum A - Functional Area of an Intersection
Addendum B - Progression Analysis
Addendum C - Protocol for VISSIM Simulation
The Protocol for VISSIM Simulation provides practitioners with ODOT expectations, guidelines, and requirements when considering and performing traffic simulation analysis with VISSIM. The protocol shall be followed on all ODOT plans and projects.
