The Admin Panel on the left side of the page includes following headers:
• Dashboard
• Access Management
• Training Models
• Model Variables
• Construction
• Static Page
• Economic Variables
• Picture
• Settings
• File Manager

In Dashboard we have a brief recent activities done on the system to have some statistics like number of new users and trained models, etc.:

Users: Where you can define the access level of each user. Also Edit ability is predicted there where you may define a range of date for each user’s password validity. In the meantime you may delete a user’s account.

Roles: An unlimited number of roles may be defined like: Admin, etc. Each user can have one or more roles.

Menu Permission: Where you define which parts of the menu are accessible for each role.

Once you click the Training Mode, a small page will be opened to show:
1. Training Status
2. The Training Accuracy
3. Training Time(s): Normally between 1000 to 1200 seconds.

Considering that in this system, in general, 19 economic variables along with the financial information of the project have been used for forecasting, it is necessary for the system manager to determine for each educational model which of the economic variables he wants to use in the educational model. For example, in construction projects up to 9 floors, it may use all economic variables, but in a hospital project, it may use 15 variables as input to the educational model. It should be noted that the column number for each variable must be the same as the column number in the training Excel file.

 

Note: As mentioned, the names of the columns and their order in the Excel file containing the training data must be the same as the name and number of columns specified in the system.

So to work with this App, Push “Train Model”, Then “Select the file”, then “Start Training”. Once the situation of the model changes to “Trained” from “In Progress”;

This section is used by the end user of the system to predict the cost of construction. The 8 parameters is defined by the user with the following definitions and is used as input for the neural network along with the economic variables defined in the previous step:

1. Project locality defined in terms of zip codes
2. Total floor area of the building
3. Lot area
4. Total preliminary estimated construction cost based on the prices at the beginning of the project
5. Preliminary estimated construction cost based on the prices at the beginning of the project
6. Equivalent preliminary estimated construction cost based on the prices at the beginning of the project in a selected base year a
7. Duration of construction
8. Price of the unit at the beginning of the project per m2

After recording this information and storing, the status and cost predicted by the neural network will be visible.

While all the website is designed dynamically, a few static pages are also designed to show fixed data like:
o Terms and Conditions
o Contact Us
o Help page

It shows the season regarding which the dataset has been feed to the system. Normally 5 or more previous seasons should be feed.
Due to the fact that in this system 19 economic variables are used for training as input and the end user of the system should not be involved in entering this information when defining project information for forecasting, this access is given to the system administrator to provide economic information and enter each chapter in this section so that the end user can automatically extract economic variables and specify them as neural network input when specifying the year and start season of the system project.

Here you may have the outcome by various formats.

At this moment is it only used to load LOGO. This can be edited or deleted in case of necessity.

Things to define an email address used for sending Forgotten Passwords are done here.

Any graphic file including photo or film can be uploaded here and to give reference in static pages.

In this version, we have added a form to transfer the end-user’s experience to the admin as follows:
