Integrating Pavement Management into a Comprehensive Strategic Asset Management System for the State of Utah Department of Transportation

Following the completion of the I-15 Design Build Project in preparation for the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games, the State of Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) began implementing a comprehensive Strategic Asset Management System (AMS). The Strategic AMS currently includes the analysis of the pavement, structures, safety, mobility and maintenance assets and enables UDOT to perform a traditional “silo” or “stovepipe” analysis as well as a cross asset analysis and optimization using many different objective functions. This paper will address the technical and institutional aspects of the integration of the UDOT Pavement Management System (PMS) into the UDOT AMS and discuss the role of the PMS and the AMS in asset management at the strategic, tactical and operational levels within UDOT. It will also present the UDOT Planning Model which describes the integration of the asset management systems at the strategic, tactical and operational levels and present the UDOT Project Harmonization approach to planning.
