IMPROVING PAVER IMPLEMENTATION
PAVER is a state-of-the-art pavement management system that can be operated either manually or by computer and is designed to optimize the funds allocated for pavement maintenance, repair, or reconstruction. Much has already been written about the benefits of PAVER. The intent of this thesis is not to detract from any of those writings, but rather to supplement them. Problem areas affecting PAVER implementation are addressed so that current or future users might benefit from the lessons others have learned. Problems which were uncovered for which there are currently no solutions can how be researched and resolved. The information necessary to identify and analyze potential PAVER implementation problems was gathered through surveys sent to current and future users, through a literature review, and through telephone and personal interviews. Fourteen potential problem areas were identified, with five of them being most likely to affect PAVER implementation. These five areas are training, manpower, equipment, top management support, and user commitment. Recommended solutions are included.
