A simplified schematic diagram of the proposed maintenance system is presented and the elements in each phase of the program are discussed in detail. The elements of the program selected phase - quality and quantity standards, road inventory, maintenance cost model, performance, budget and feedback reports - contribute to the management functions of identifying total work backlog, ranking it, budgeting and updating the total system. The system elements in the excution phase - performance standards, periodic assessments, routine and feedback reports - assist managers in scheduling, monitoring, controlling and evaluating the performance of the work crews. Commitment to the quality standard approach is vital to the ultimate success of the system. The importance is stressed of analysis and selection of the appropriate maintenance strategy. An example illustrating various strategies for bituminous surface patching is shown. An impact tableau prepared by California to analyze the effects of reducing quality levels is briefly outlined. Information provided by performance standards for various maintenance activities are reviewed, and the scheduling methods of the pavement assessemnt (routine inspection; systematic inspection; detailed assessment) process are described.
