Guidebook for Data and Information Systems for Transportation Asset Management

This report presents a structured approach for assessing an organization’s current data and information management practices in support of transportation asset management and strategies for improving these practices. The guidebook may be applied comprehensively to the organization’s transportation asset management activities or focus on particular components such as an asset class (for example, bridges) or activities (for example, data collection). An online digital tool (the TAM Data Assistant) is intended to assist analysis and offers benchmarking comparisons for assessments. The research report supplements the assessment guidance, presenting background information from the NCHRP research project underlying the guidebook. Research Report 956 will help agency staff and others responsible for developing and managing an agency’s transportation asset management data and information resources and will support decision making with accurate, timely, and reliable information.
