Study Period

The length of the time period covered by a report regarding the assets.

Typically, the study period in a reserve study or maintenance plan is 30 years. That is, it covers a period of 30 calendar years, starting from the base year and ending with the terminus year.

Depending on the scope of services for the consulting team, projects that are "beyond-the-horizon" or "behind-the-horizon" may  be outside the study period.
