ACPT Product Matrix

The ACPT product-marketing implementation plan for each product has been developed as a product matrix for each ACPT Focus Area and is included in the appendix. it is expected that, as FHWA authorizes the implementation activity of each ACPT product, a detailed marketing and product implementation plan will be developed for each product in conjunction with the marketing of the overall ACPT.

Timeline for ACPT Product Deployment

The timeline for delivery of the promising ACPT products can be categorized as follows:

  1. Immediate availability for delivery.
  2. Within 24 months-product available, but requires further refinement or better packaging for delivery.
  3. Under development-product available within 24 months.
    1. Product ready for delivery.
    2. Products may require further refinement or better packaging for delivery.
  4. Under development-product available after 24 months.
    1. Product ready for delivery.
    2. Products may require further refinement or better packaging for delivery.

The timeline for each ACPT product is identified in the appendix.
