Transportation Asset Management Thresholds

The goal of the project is to establish guidelines to answer the following questions: 1. What asset management programs are appropriate to support existing business practices in agencies with small transportation networks? & 2. What level of resources should be committed to adopting, implementing and supporting such programs? The objectives of the proposed research are to: 1. Catalog best practices in asset management based on technological sophistication, expertise needed (information technology vs. organizational), and funding requirements (initial investment, maintenance, training, and upgrade costs), as well as other potential measures of value. 2. Assess status of municipal and county agencies in terms of resources, organizational structure, and related infrastructure systems. 3.Perform a linkage analysis for establishing guidelines as to what types of activities and support tools, data are appropriate depending on the status of agencies. 4. Create a customized a plan to suggest activities that agencies can conduct within the framework of asset management and that are within their resources.
