Roadway Striping Productivity Data Analysis for INDOT Greenfield and Crawfordsville Districts

The main objective of the SPR‐3650 project is to provide an accurate overview of striping operations so that Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) finds a way to effectively save significant investment for purchasing new striping trucks in the near future without compromising roadway striping operations and maintenance. Telematics technology was used to collect 2012 striping season operation data, from April 2012 to November 2012, in real‐time via wireless network to analyze striping operation performance mainly focusing on four striping trucks in the Crawfordsville and Greenfield district. The study focused on productivity and utilization as key performance components. Productivity and utilization analyses revealed that there is significant opportunity to improve. As a result of data analysis, four recommendations and performance metrics were suggested. Several statistical techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation and triangular distribution model were used to develop the performance metrics. An expected further outcome of the study is that a new data collection system provides an opportunity to improve various INDOT roadway maintenance operations.
