DEVELOPMENT OF FRAMEWORK FOR PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR ARIZONA

The investigation was designed to develop an implementable pavement management system incorporating multiple attributes of cost and performance factors. The pavement management system compares alternate initial designs with selected maintenance procedures to determine the most appropriate combinations of design and maintenance strategies. The system also works with in-service pavements. Unique features of the system include the use of utility theory to combine multiple attributes into a single summary value, the consideration of 'tradeoffs' between attributes and the inclusion of uncertainty in the prediction models. Computer programs have been prepared and the system is considered ready for trial implementation on selected projects within the state.
