FUTURE DIRECTIONS AND NEED FOR INNOVATION IN PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT

The improvement in pavement management system (PMS) application and implementation has not been matched by improvements in the component technology of pavement management. Many problems that existed in the 1970s, such as the lack of good, long-term performance prediction models, still exist in the 1990s. A substantial amount of innovation will be necessary to realize a standardized pavement management process with widespread application. Required innovation and research should range from short-term problem solving to strategic efforts toward technology and application improvements. In conclusion, the authors present a list of eight problems and proposed solutions, which they believe will facilitate the advancement of pavement management.
