The development and use of a pavement management system (PMS) is essential for owner/agencies to make wise use of available resources. A good PMS will help managers determine when rehabilitation and preventive maintenance work needs to be done in order to optimize overall highway system performance at the lowest cost. An inventory of all roads and their pavement condition index (based on a pavement condition survey) will enable managers to develop “what if” scenarios with different treatments in order to determine the alternative strategy that will result in the best cost-benefit ratio. The course will also review the type of data that needs to be collected and some of the types of equipment available for that purpose.
