The MLU is a comprehensive labor reference for electrical estimators. It lists the national average direct labor time required to install electrical material under typical conditions on a typical project.
Developed as an add-on feature to TRA-SER, this biennial subscription adds the data contained in the 2015-16 NECA Manual of Labor Units to the TRA-SER database through an internet-based process. New and updated labor units are automatically added to the database. Excel-formatted images of the pages in the manual are viewable in TRA-SER and can be printed.
MLU data has been integrated with most major electrical construction estimating software systems. Trade Service has developed a 'link specification' with each of the estimating software systems enabling them to create a seamless update of the MLU data from TRA-SER into their applications.
