MICROCOMPUTER FLAGS ROADS THAT NEED REPAIR

Tampa, Florida, was a test site for the mainframe PAVER Pavement Management System in the early 1980's and has been using the system on a time-sharing basis ever since. Now, the city has converted to the PC-based Micro PAVER. The system provides a computerized inventory and status report of Tampa's street network which are used to allocate the $1.5 million annual asphalt maintenance budget. The system also provides life-cycle cost estimates to assist city officials in planning long-term maintenance. Micro PAVER is designed to run on an IBM or IBM-compatible equipment with a minimum of 640K RAM and a 20 megabyte hard disk. Further details of its use by Tampa are included in this article.
