Maintenance Activity Data Analysis for Performance Based Budgeting

The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) Maintenance Bureau is responsible for conducting effective and efficient highway maintenance operations throughout the state. A primary maintenance objective is to ensure effective and economical utilization of resources in the accomplishments of maintenance programs. In 2011, the Maintenance Bureau upgraded software programs used to collect and store data related to daily maintenance activities. Specifically, a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and a statistical software package were acquired. One objective in obtaining the systems was to improve budgeting performance and analysis for the Maintenance Bureau. This report presents the results of a study completed to review the CMMS system and to identify and demonstrate techniques that can maximize the usefulness of the large amount of quality data captured by the CMMS system since its implementation at ALDOT. The intended outcome of the study is to identify an analysis technique successful in increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the current Bureau budgeting practices, as they relate to daily activities and asset condition assessments, without burdening the current process.
