The structure management system on Croatian highways

The Structure Management System was designed by IGH INSTITUTE (Zagreb, Croatia) for the company Croatian Motorways. The task of the system is to provide insight into the value, condition and safety of motorway structures, and to maintain them at the expected and required level of the planned investments and with minimum expenses. The system is composed of seven subsystems, each comprised of a particular motorway structures group and representing a separate unit (pavements, bridges, drainage, tunnels, geotechnical structures, buildings and motorway equipment). Each subsystem is designed so that its management procedures are on a common platform with other subsystems in order to enable future integration into a unified system at the level of all structures within the motorway network. The principles of the COST Action 354 project are taken for such a common platform, applied to the pavement management subsystem and adjusted to the specifics of other groups of structures. This paper uses pavement management subsystem as an example to present the connections with other subsystems as a foundation of their integration at the level of the entire motorway management system.
