Alabama Bridge Management System Plus Phase II: A Budget, Cost & Condition Sensitivity Analysis Tool

This project will extend the usefulness of ABIMS+ to allow bridge maintenance analysts to examine alternative future bridge replacement decisions by assessing the potential impact of varying annual maintenance budgets and annual maintenance costs. This project will provide data intensive modeling to support: 1) Quantitative decision planning through the use of alternative rating systems (Sufficiency, Deficiency and GASB metrics), 2) Analysis of bridge sets based on an extensive set of filters (funding limit, route type, geographic location, division, type of maintenance action, and other exclusionary contraints), 3) Report generation for network-level maintenance assessments, and 4) Predicted bridge network ratings and improvements costs.
