Development of a Prototype Evidence-Based Database and Planning Tool: Applying Performance Management Principles in Asset Management Program Development

The purpose of this research is to develop an evidence-based planning tool and database that will help agencies to strategically plan the development of their asset management programs using accumulated experience to achieve higher-performance output. Specifically, the research will: (1) Conduct a literature review to determine best practices in evidence-based design, planning and programming that can be applied to Transportation. It will also draw from existing key literature on performance management; (2) Work with American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Transportation Research Board (TRB) and other relevant professional organizations to determine and refine key performance indicators for tracking asset management program performance; (3) Design and conduct multiple case studies to collect best practices and lessons learned in asset management program development (both network-level and project-level asset management); (4) Develop procedures to evaluate program maturity levels against performance as indicated by key performance indicators; and (5) Develop prototype evidence-based database and planning tool for performance -based planning of asset management program development.
