The Guide suggests that the basic purpose of a pavement management system is to achieve the best value possible for available public funds and to provide safe, comfortable and economic transportation. This is accomplished by comparing investment alternatives at both the network and project levels, coordinating design, construction and maintenance activities, and making efficient use of existing practices and knowledge. This paper provides a very brief summary of the Guide. It discusses benefits and implementation guidelines associated with pavement management, network investment programming, optimization of project investment, pavement evaluation, structural design of flexible and rigid pavements, construction, maintenance, data banks, and guidelines for research management.
