INFORMAL DISCUSSION ON SYSTEMS BUILDING FOR BRIDGES

THE COMMENTS OF THE WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS WERE DIRECTED TOWARD FUTURE ACTIONS THAT WOULD ENCOURAGE THE SYSTEMS BUILDING OF BRIDGES. THE BASIC NEED IS FOR USER ACCEPTANCE, IN THIS CASE BY OFFICIALS AND ENGINEERS IN THE FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS. SUCH ACCEPTANCE WILL RESULT IN SPECIFICATIONS AMENABLE TO SYSTEMS CONSTRUCTION, IN MARKET AGGREGATION, AND PERHAPS, IN AN EVALUATION OF THE TURNKEY OR EUROPEAN SYSTEM OF CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION, ALL OF WHICH WOULD FOSTER THE CREATIVE ATMOSPHERE SO ESSENTIAL TO PROGRESS. THE GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP CAN BEST BE GAINED THROUGH THE EDUCATION OF HIGHWAY OFFICIALS REGARDING THE CONCEPTS, CAPABILITIES, AND ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEMS APPROACH. /HRB/
